      ... and commonly referred to as the baby cart.

      (As a speaker of en_GB that's not a term in our common usage. You are more likely to hear "buggy" or "pram". IMHO this makes the "baby cart" term even more preferable since it has a unique meaning for me - it's only the perl operator, regardless of context.)

        Yeah, I've never heard the term "baby cart" outside the context of Perl. (I grew up in Australia and live in the UK.)
