Hmm. On second thought there is a problem. These variables should be listed under perlvar.
in reply to Re: Re: Re: Re: use strict won't require explicit name for all variables?
in thread use strict won't require explicit name for all variables?
As should $1 up. That would place all of the variables that have special meaning in one place and would reduce the possibility of this type of error. (Well assuming RTFM ;-)
I will send a perlbug report out today on this issue. Maybe itll be factored into 5.8?
UPDATE: DOH! $1 and the regex vars _are_ documented under perlvar. By bad.
UPDATE: A documentation enhancement request has been sent to the perlbug people...
