What are Literal Matches?
Literals aren’t very exciting and they are exactly as they sound. They match exactly as presented aka ‘literally‘.
NOTE: One thing to note is that once a match us discovered left to right and once it has been discovered it can no longer can be considered a match elsewhere. (It is consumed).
