1) Not being able to quickly find the match operator docs. Whoever created the concept of "perl quote like operators" was daft. In the perl docs, there should be one page in the documents titled "Match operator: m//"; there should be another page in the documents titled "Substitution operator: s///"; etc. Grouping all those operators under one vague heading and another vague subheading was a terrible idea. I should be able to go to the match operator with one click on the google search results. Having to navigate to perlop>quote like operators>then scroll around looking for the match operator is ridiculous organization.
