in reply to What does ".=" mean?

It's one example of the generalisation of operators like +=: $x OP= $y; is the same as $x = $x OP $y;, where OP can be most of the common binary operators (meaning operators with 2 arguments, one on each side of the operator). So $x .= $y; is the same as $x = $x . $y;

See Assignment Operators in perlop.
