in reply to Here, doccy doccy. nice doccy. heredoc, treat.

Anything that allows for interpolated context (which means qq, qx and qr) can fairly easily be adapted to use here docs:
print `${\<<HERE}`; date HERE
print qx {${\<<HERE}}; date HERE
And for qx:
print qr /${\<<HERE}/; x*foo HERE
For q and qq, we already know what to do, single or double quote the delimeter. Which leaves us with qw, which is fairly simple too:
my @words = split ' ' => <<'HERE'; some words go here HERE
