For those that do not grok this delightful Perl obfuscation, I unveil the secret of <<=>>:

print <<=>> 1; text print "done\n"; # is actually print << "BLANK_LINE" => > 1; text BLANK_LINE print "done\n"; # is actually print << "BLANK_LINE", > 1; text BLANK_LINE print "done\n";
And the comma is superfluous.
