Goatse operator, huh? Any idea why it isn't mentioned in perlop?

Also, is there a way to achieve what this operator does (forced array context) without an assigment? I.e. to use inside a map { ... } without introducing temporary variables.

    See links from BooK proposes a new Perl secret operator for info on 'secret' operators.

    ... a way to achieve what this operator does ... without an assigment? I.e. ... inside a map

    Maybe because the political correct name is now "Rolex operator" ? ;-)

    DB<107> $s="a"x10 => "aaaaaaaaaa" DB<108> scalar ( ()= $s =~ /a/g ) => 10

      Are they renaming the watches to Goatse at the same time to reciprocate?

        Almost, it's a circular swap!

        The watches will be rebranded to "Saturn" and the planet is now called "Goatse" ...
