in thread Perl oddities

When I see "die if (long && complicated condition)" I know that I can stop reading the condition, because it's an error check and therefore probably not interesting to me. Or, if it says "$name = $1 if /long and complicated regex/;" then I can skip over the regex because I know what it's doing.
