in reply to $1, etc. are not just strings

I like to use this syntax to capture from regular expresions.

if (my ($a, $b) = ("$key$val" =~ /(..)(...)/)) { $hash2{$a} = $b; }
#!/usr/bin/perl use Test::More "no_plan"; use Devel::Size "total_size"; my $key = "aa"; my $val = "a00"; my %hash1; my %hash2; while (length($key) == 2) { $hash1{$key} = $val; if (my ($a, $b) = ("$key$val" =~ /(..)(...)/)) { $hash2{$a} = $b; } ++$key; ++$val; } is(keys(%hash1), keys(%hash2), "same number of keys"); is_deeply(\%hash1, \%hash2, "is_deeply same"); is(total_size(\%hash1), total_size(\%hash2)); __END__ ok 1 - same number of keys ok 2 - is_deeply same ok 3
