I see good progress is being made in finally exposing these.

               An array which exposes the contents of the capture buffers, if 
any, of
               the last successful pattern match, not counting patterns
               matched in nested blocks that have been exited already.

But I found one that is still missing.

There is

       $&      The string matched by the last successful pattern match.

But what still needs to be added is a

       @&      The array  matched by the last successful m/.../g pattern match.

OR, please add to the explanation of $&, that unlike m/.../, m/.../g's
array can always be obtained by my @F = m/.../g and thus isn't even
stored in memory, even though plain m/.../g in void context does not
trigger any warnings...
