[Melbourne-pm] How to parse n matches out of a string?

Is there a 'best practice' idiom for parsing out multiple matches from a
string, ie.
   'blahMatchblah blah blahMatch blah blahMatchblah'

Previously I've done:
  while (my ($match,$rest) = $string =~ m#(Match)(.*)) {
     $string = $rest;
which works, but seems inelegant.

Is there a better/recommended way?
