This is a new one for me. What/how is that used?

Update: Never mind, found it. Though I see I already got a reply, thanks! (and downvotes for an honest question, some people are just too funny ;~) Still, was a new one to me... ah well.

    From perlvar (5.8.0):

    The special filehandle that points to the currently open output file when doing edit-in-place processing with -i. Useful when you have to do a lot of inserting and don't want to keep modifying $_. See perlrun for the -i switch.

    Note: While it is mentioned in the Perl documentation prior to version 5.8.0, I have yet to see it explained in such a way.
