simplifies a regexp
We simplify two things here: First since * is greedy it is enough to go look for the rightmost ::, no need to ask the regexp engine to match the rest of the string since we are not validating anything, only capturing. The second simplification comes from using a look-ahead assertion, that allows us to have the capture in $&, thus removing the need of a group.
