Hmm it is of course as you say. I must have got myself confused with the behaviour of s///.

$data = 'stuff stuff stuff'; $num = $data =~ s/(stuff)//g; print $num, $/; __DATA__ 3

You can force it to do as I said by cheating thusly....

$num = () = 'stuff stuff stuff' =~ m/(stuff)/g; print $num; __DATA__ 3

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
