in thread Perl oddities

Good point. More generic: Having no built-in s/// that returns a modified copy is annoying.

    True. I'd like to see a switch:

    my $modified = s/$pattern/$change_to/gr;

    Where /r stands for 'replaced', or somesuch.

      Would that be equivalent to
      (my $modified = $_) =~ s/$pattern/$change_to/g;
      or
      s/$pattern/$change_to/g; my $modified = $_;
      ?
