Subject: alias for %+
Message ID:
The %+ variable, which is new in 5.10 if i understand correctly,
doesn't have a proper alias for

%LAST_PAREN_MATCH works, because it is defined in as an
alias for *+. But it's not an intuitive name and it wasn't intended
for this and it's not documented in perlvar.

Is there anyone who decides about the names of aliases in,
or can i just be bold, make up a name and send a patch? I thought that
%NAMED_CAPTURE would be appropriate.

This is my first message on this list, so if it's a stupid question or
the wrong list, feel free to bite me.
