Often you can just assign the results of the match. Make sure you are in list context if you have only one capture.

my ($this, $that, $some, $other) = /(this)(that).*(some)....(other)$/; my ($cap) = /hello(there)/; # OK my $cap = /hello(there)/; # BUG

    But not if you use /g, as /g acts quite differently in scalar and in list context.
