in reply to Problem with ampersand and regex

use warnings;: "Possible unintended interpolation of @123..."

Use single quotes: my $line = 'mail: asdf@123.com'; and see if that clears it up for you.

use strict; doesn't catch this one because it treats "digit" variables special, and allows them without declaration.

    It looks like it trying to make the question overly simple, I made the mistake of omitting something very important. The definition of $line is coming from looping through an array as in the following:
    foreach my $line (@array) { . . . }
    With that in mind, how can I define $line with single quotes? Sorry for the mistake.

      How are you filling @array?

        It is being filled by the output of a system call to ldapsearch. Thank you.
