temporal has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This morning I was drinking my coffee and wandering the catacombs of ancient PerlMonks threads. Today's dark, dank corner happened to be Past Polls.

I was zipping down the replies to I resolve to finally grok and use the regex option... and discovered this post: Re: I resolve to finally grok and use the regex option...:

What about /. ?
Nobody who groks /. uses it. They avoid it.

I was curious enough to try it. Syntax Error.

A little difficult to search for (lol). Can anyone shed some light on this enigmatic regex option?

Strange things are afoot at the Circle-K.

    That's no regex option... it's a web site!

    Slashdot

    You really don't want to grok that... I hear only a bunch of useless trolls hang out over there ;)
