in reply to strange usage of s/// [solved: Perl 5.14 and 5.16 bug]

B::Deparse seems to understand and to see difference between variants:

1) Original:

perl -MO=Deparse -e '$_="abcdef"; s/@{[s".."."gr]}\K$"//; print' $_ = 'abcdef'; s[@{[s/.././rg];}\K][$"]; print $_; -e syntax OK

Do the rigth thing, but why?!

2) Litteral space char (not $"):

perl -MO=Deparse -e '$_="abcdef"; s/@{[s".."."gr]}\K //; print' $_ = 'abcdef'; s[@{[s/.././rg];}][\\K ]; print $_; -e syntax OK

Strange, isn't it? :). I'm confused...

    Perl v5.18.1 handles them as one would expect:
    perl -MO=Deparse -e '$_="abcdef"; s/@{[s".."."gr]}\K$"//; print' $_ = 'abcdef'; s[@{[s/.././gr];}\K$"][]; print $_; -e syntax OK
    perl -MO=Deparse -e '$_="abcdef"; s/@{[s".."."gr]}\K //; print' $_ = 'abcdef'; s[@{[s/.././gr];}\K ][]; print $_; -e syntax OK

    PS: With Perl v5.14.2 I get the same result as you.

    (Testing environment was 64bit Linux in both cases.)

    So yeah, strange indeed...

      Thank you very much, smls. Original post updated.
