in thread Situation where warning "Found = in conditional, should be" seems obsolete

Also I want to suggest another thing in documentation, which is a bit related:
Now in documentation there is a section 'Logical or and Exclusive Or' - https://perldoc.perl.org/perlop#Logical-or-and-Exclusive-Or. Both operators 'or' and 'xor' has the same precedence. But I think they differ from each other by significant: 1) one short-circuits, another - doesn't, 2) one - returns only 1 or ''/0, another returns last expression (in case of left expression it is returned evaluated). I suggest to split it into separate sections.
As they were both in one section, I though of their similar behavior, and once I thought 'xor' will return last expression not 1 or ''/0 (related node: 'xor' operator is not a sibling to 'or' and 'and'?).

    PerlMonks is not the maintainer of the documentation. You can always open a documentation Pull Request in Perl's GitHub.

    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]
      Thanks. I'll try to figure out how to do it one day. I usually write here for obtaining criticism or approval. And maybe someone who is more familiar with pulling requests and who speaks english better could ask for changes.

      Upd. Recently created a documentation issue -- https://github.com/Perl/perl5/issues/18572
