  • nobody (and I mean, really, nobody) ever uses these operators in scalar context

    I'm not saying it's common, but I've certainly used those operators in scalar context.

    while (<SOMEFILE>) {
      print if 10 .. 20;
    }

    Or perhaps:

    while (<SOMEFILE>) {
      print if /START/ ... /END/;
    }
