Replacement param in format in EXTRACT limited to $9?

-- RaymondLutz - 06 Feb 2012

When I use formal parameters more than $9, like $10, $11, they do not work. Instead, the format="..." function grabs item $1 and appends 0 or 1, for example. This is supposed to work in Perl, so I am wondering if you are doing your own regex replacement that is limited to one digit.

To be complete, here is my use:
|  *Author / Thread Link / Attachment*  | *Top Comment (date)*  |
%EXTRACT{topic="%TOPIC%Admin" expand="on" pattern="(\d+)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\t]*)\t([^\r\n]*)[\r\n]+" format="|<!--$2-->[[$3][$2]]<br>[[$7][Thread]]<br>URL: [[$10][$11]]  |<!--$6-->($5)<br>$4  |$n"}%

This draws from a data file attached and included into %TOPIC%Admin which is a tab-separated-values file with 11 data fields. When I try to use fields $10 and $11, it pulls field $1 and appends a 0 and 1 respectively.
