in thread pos()atively mysterious.

Ah so! Grasshopper. Thanks++

No matter how many times I read

Returns the offset of where the last m//g search left off for the variable in question.

I never took in the significance of those last 5 words.

Makes sense (now:), if was just the last position matched by the last m//g which was how I was reading it, there would be no need for a function; a $var would do.

D'oh!
