Perl foreach

If you iterate in Perl of something

my @mystuff = ("foo", "bar");

there is automatically a variable $_ with the current iteration in it

foreach(@mystuff)
{
 print "$_";
}

Some commands use this variable if you don't name one

foreach (@mystuff)
{
   /foo/ and print "Found foo!";
}

Man kann aber natürlich auch eine Variable angeben

foreach my $x(@mystuff)
{
 print "$x";
}
