Just a quick note. _ is no longer being used for the concatenation operator, now it's ~.

Also, the "." syntax has one big advantage: topics. When calling a method on the topic ($_ (also $self in OO -- see article on perl.com)), a lone dot looks much better than a lone arrow. .method vs. ->method And it fits my brain better for assignment.
"hello " ~ "world";
$str ~= "!!!"; # which is different from =~ (if =~ isn't changed)
