Binary "x" is the repetition operator. In scalar context or if
left operand is not enclosed in parentheses, it returns a strin
consisting of the left operand repeated the number of times spe
by the right operand. In list context, if the left operand is
in parentheses or is a list formed by "qw/STRING/", it repeats
list. If the right operand is zero or negative, it returns an
string or an empty list, depending on the context.
print '-' x 80; # print row of dashes
print "\t" x ($tab/8), ' ' x ($tab%8); # tab over
@ones = (1) x 80; # a list of 80 1's
@ones = (5) x @ones; # set all elements to 5
