The scope of "$1" with respect to the regular expression is within the if block IIRC. Who knows what "$1" is outside of if block. Btw, you forgot "use warnings;" after "use strict;"

    It's being used in the same block as the one in which it's set.

      Interesting. I would have thought that the scope of what is in the if (...) would be only within the if (...) { } code block. The fact that it works doesn't mean the code should be written that way IMHO.
