in reply to Why I can't remove trailing slash

      I want to remove the trailing slash in the path but the code print nothing. Why?

Added exactly one line to your code and got results. Here's the new code:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; sub main { my $path = "\\\\\\c$\\bak\\"; $path =~ s/\\$//; print __FILE__.__LINE__." path $path\n"; return; } main();
and here are the results:
$ ./ Use of uninitialized value $\ in concatenation (.) or string at ./hack line 6. ./hackslash.pl8 path \\\ak
What I think you really wanted was to add a backslash before the $ since normally that would have been interpoloated resulting in :
# note the backslash in front of the dollar sign my $path = "\\\\\\c\$\\bak\\";
giving you:
$ ./ ./hackslash.pl8 path \\\c$\bak

Creating a sub without calling it will act as a NOOP.
