in thread I resolve to finally grok and use the regex option...

You might not use them because there are other ways to get around them. For instance, with qr//, you don't need to ever use m//o. m//m can be useful when you're trying to read in data records, but you can also match on the line seperator with a lookahead or lookbehind assertion. (or line seperator or \A or \Z, it you might match the very beginning or very end)
