Does it mean that it's a synonym to "&readline"?

No. It's the general-purpose "iterate this..." operator.

Applied to a filehandle, it iterates the filehandle (which *is* equivalent to calling C<readline>).

But it can also be applied to any other iterator object, in which case it calls that object's C<.next> method.
