in thread s///g and capturing all matches

Hi Jethro,

and the answer to life, the universe and everything is 42 ;)

I was wondering why the implementations differ, as well as seeking an ellegant way to get the behaviour I wanted. If s///; returned a list of the items sub'd out then it would be easy enough to use that in scalar contect to have the number. Felt rather un-Perlish to miss out on potential utility.

Cheers,
R.
