I'd assume that one reason 5.005 supports ?{} is that 5.004 needed it. :) Although the object would definitly have to return a match string, right?... So if you have an object that just outputs data, the proper syntax would be:  $myobj->print() =~ /$myvar/ So you might want to/need to swap what's doing the matching on what. Of course, without context I'm not sure if this is even possible.
