in thread Why do we say the =~ operator "binds"?

As long as $var was named something like $count, or possibly $matched, or the context itself gave this information then I would say its fine. If $var was actually $str or the like I would probably say it was a bug. If it said ($var)=/$pattern/ it would almost certainly be fine regardless.
