Rdoc for String#=~
This patch clarifies the different behaviour for str =~ regexp and regexp =~ str regarding captured strings and assigning to local variables. (See also issue #7042.)
Note: str =~ regexp is not the same as
regexp =~ str. Strings captured from named capture groups
are not assigned to local variables in the first case.
