'perlre' manpage 'deficiency' (bug?) & 'perlreref' inconsistency
Message ID:
Is it purposeful or an unintentional omission (bug?), that the 'o'
operator is missing from the list of flags.

Also, as the manpage is really just about regex's, and not the
replacement part of an 's' command, maybe the 'e' command not being
mentioned is not a omission, however, it's a bit odd that it would
occur in a mention of perlreref then (personally I think it might be
friendly/helpful to mention it in both places, but 'technically', one
might consider it not belonging in either...snort;  I prefer helpful...:-).

This is in the perl5.10 dist on Suse11.1.
