in thread Scoping issues with code evaluation asserstions?

I think that's a bit too clever. What if there is a global variable named $regex? You've just clobbered it. I think creating a local alias is probably better.

use strict; use warnings; sub regex { my $in = shift; my $ret = ''; # Assign something to $ret in a code assertion local *alias = \$ret; $in =~ m/^(a)(?{ $alias = 1})/; return $ret; } while(<DATA>) { print regex($_) . "."; } print "\n"; __DATA__ a b a abcd bcda
