=begin
This patch clarifies the different behaviour for str =~ regexp and regexp =~ str regarding captured strings and assigning to local variables. (See also issue #7042.)

Added text:

Note: <code>str =~ regexp</code> is not the same as
<code>regexp =~ str</code>. Strings captured from named capture groups
are not assigned to local variables in the first case.
