    Searching twice is expensive and unnecessary:

    $a="THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS";; $p=0; @p=(); push @p, $p-1 while $p = 1+index $a, 'O', $p; print @p;; 5 6 18

    Or:

    $a="THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS";; @p=(); push @p, $-[0] while $a =~ m[O]g;; print @p;; 5 6 18

    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
