One should also note that one can use the /g regex-modifier in scalar
context in conjuction with pos , /c , etc. For some more comprehensive pages
about that and other methods of parsing text, see:

* http://perl-begin.org/uses/text-parsing/

* http://perl-begin.org/topics/regular-expressions/

(Note: I originated http://perl-begin.org/ and I still maintain it.)
