in thread when $$s =~ m/\G.../gc is too verbose

Oops, I forgot it. I always localize or lexicalize variables proper to a subroutine That's why I never noticed that $_ is not implicetely localized at the entry of a subroutine contrary to what I thought.

Sadly, localizing *_ or $_ doesn't play well with reference shuffling of strings with positions.

sub lexer { (*_) = @_; print $1 if m/\G(A)/gc || m/\G(B)/gc ; } my $a = "AB"; lexer \$a; ; lexer \$a;
This prints "A" then "B"; If I add a local *_ or a local $_, at the entry of the lexer routine, that does not work anymore. So much for a cool trick.
