in reply to Perl Idioms Explained - my $count = () = /.../g

=()= has been known on occasion as the "goatse" operator. While it's not actually an operator, it is the funniest name for a perl idiom I've ever heard (if you get the joke great, if not, research it at your own peril).

    It's unfortunate that a Perl "function" (or idiom) has become the butt of a joke ;-)
