Ratazong,
I think is good practice to always check "match" m// string. Incase, the match string fails, one can know.

    The link posted in Re^2 by AnonyMonk points to an elderly post which links to the (sorely outdated) docs here on-site.

    A better way to do this is [docs://perlre] which produces a link, perlre, (to the perlre page http://perldoc.perl.org/) and the current docs.

    Though, I suppose, if directing one's suggestions to someone who hasn't updated/upgraded his or her installed Perl since 1999, the Monastery docs might be more appropriate.
