The answers are:
  • Yes
  • Yes
  • Just because.... ;-)
In a few cases, $_ is implicitely localized: in the block/expression of map and grep and in the block of a foreach that doesn't have its own iterator mentioned. (If the iterator is mentioned, with no my preceeding it, the iterator is localized too). This is all documented where foreach, map and grep are documented: perlsyn and perlfunc.

There is a difference between foreach and while because they are two totally different things. foreach always assigns to a variable when looping over a list, while while normally doesn't. It's just that while (<>) is an exception and only when there's a single diamond operator there's an implicite assignment to $_.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
