Thanks for the links. Those make it pretty clear how it is useful. Although Perl isn't a text editor I seem to be too often.

On one of the slides in the second link I found this interesting regex. s/^/>> /; Another obvious thing I suppose that I didn't know or realize before: that you can substitute something for nothing and therefore insert something at a boundary.

    Yes, or you can substitute something for what may be nothing, as in s/\n*\z/\n/.
