This entire page:
does not have a single occurrence of the word "lambda".
In my humble opinion it's a pretty important trick to utilize capture groups in lambdas to e.g. use them to access value in a dictionary.
Examples are available here:
and here:
but somehow not in the documentation.
There is a mention about referencing groups from different contexts, but the lambda is quite unique and although I think it does fall under "when processing match object m", I think it still is worth its own entry.

Btw. it's my first contribution here, sorry for any faux pas I may have commited, please point it out if I did!
