Bingo. Thanks.

That "Range Operators" page I have now read in my console via perldoc -f ..

It dawned on me after posting that the first condition is never true and I came up with

$ perl -le " print for grep { my $what = scalar($Q++==0 ..($_ eq q{Q} +)); warn $what; $what } qw{ a b c Q r s }; " 1 at -e line 1. 2 at -e line 1. 3 at -e line 1. 4E0 at -e line 1. Warning: something's wrong at -e line 1. Warning: something's wrong at -e line 1. a b c Q

    To make things a bit more readable, you could use the match-once operator like this:
    perl -le " print for grep ?? .. /Q/, @ARGV " a b c Q r s ___ a b c Q


      $ perldoc -f ?? No documentation for perl function '??' found
