What is the reason for using ${^PREMATCH} instead of $PREMATCH?

    Quote perlre: "Once Perl sees that you need one of $& , $` , or $' anywhere in the program, it has to provide them for every pattern match. This may substantially slow your program."

    ${^PREMATCH} and the like are only set on demand (/p), so Perl doesn't need to preemptively populate it whenever you perform a match.
