When writing Perl code, it's always fun to use some of the undocumented operators.

The good ol' +- operator always comes in handy.  My personal favorite is the ever-reliable '= operator.  And what obfuscation would be complete without a terminal /+ operator?

Can you find any other undocumented operators below?

@ == "GqwpWrlplbnTbnpDwghav"=~ /.../g; @ +- map { +map++ $_,@ =} +$ = ... 3**7; @ '= split /(?=[A-Q])/, join $* ,@ =; die + qq + @'$ /+

The inspiration for the technique used came indirectly from this node by blazar.

Update:  Fixed wording, as pointed out by jdporter.
