in reply to what would you like to see in perl5.12?

On the basis of replace text with function ? and similar, a version of s///(g) that takes a code ref as the second half of the construct (somehow) and calls the subroutine with @_ aliased to the current captures:

sub transform ( $_[ 0 ] = 'tripped'; } ... $text =~ s[cow\s+(jumps)\s+over][\&transform]rg; ## /r for 'ref'?

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
