Name any 5 regular expression modifies and describe the effect each has on a pattern match

True / False

1)      You may choose any non-alphanumeric character as a delimiter for a regular expression patter match
2)      while (<$file>) {&} and foreach(<$file>) {&} have the same output (assume similar statement block
3)      while (<$file>) {&} and foreach(<$file>) {&} operate internally in the same manner (assume similar statement block

see
perldoc perlop
you can't use whitespace as a delimiter

print $.
