in reply to Strange behaviour of m and $_

Subroutine invocations don't interpolate in double quoted strings (of which m// is a special kind). Either store the results from your function in a scalar and let that interpolate, or use something like /@{[ test_reg1() ]}/ instead.

And an aside, don't use the leading ampersand on subroutine calls; it does things to how the sub is called and unless you specifically have a reason to (and know why you're doing it) you should just omit it.

    Slight clarification: that only applies when no () follow the sub name.
      ...except
      $\=$/; sub print { CORE::print("[$_[0]]"); } print('foo'); # foo &print('bar'); # [bar]
