in reply to Using grep and glob to find directories containing file

With "goatse" it's a list _assignment_ = which in scalar context returns the number of list elements assigned.

I'll have to accept that on faith. Edit: Well, I guess I don't have to take it on faith:

se strict; use warnings; use 5.012; my $x = () = ('a', 'b', 'c'); #scalar context on left, a list assignment on right #Full goatse syntax: my $x =()= ('a', 'b', 'c'); say $x; --output:-- 3

PS: you replied to yourself twice.

In my opinion, the indenting is a terrible feature. All posts in a thread should be at the same level of indenting--none. If you want to respond to a particular post, you should quote it.
