in thread "Secret" operators

That's the <> operator. =$something= isn't a simple scalar, so it's equivalent to glob("=$something="). On the other hand, <$something> means readline($something). (For special weirdness, <$ something> is the same as glob($something).)

See glob, readline and I/O Operators in perlop for details.
