I'm matching a pattern against a long string, and I want to examine each
occurrence of the match. I know that $& stores the match, but is there
a way to store EVERY match in the string, and then look at them?
$str = "This is a very long string, isn't it?"
If I want to match against something like /i[st]/ to pick up all the
'is' and 'it' strings, then see what I've got (i.e. each instance), can
I do it?
I've tried to wade through the whole \G /g etc. world, but it doesn't
seem to work for me.
