Zaxo is right with his explanation, but what I don't understand is your output.
What happens is that the negated pattern bind operator substitutes the first capital "H" it finds in "WooHoo".
I am evaluating whether the substitution was *not* successful, but since I do nothing with the result I get a the void warning. Since my string has changed I now print "WooWoo". I would have expected your code to print "WooWoo" too.
I'm going to quit now because this sounds a bit too much like a Dr. Seuss book.
Thanks duff. I see now what the problem is. In my code, I'm taking only a few snippets of the original code. If I take the whole code, I'm working on the modified string "HooHoo" at the time, and would need a /g modifier to get both "H"'s
