    This is easy to do when typing code directly into a node, you would catch this quickly but for the new monks:

    $str = "testing\";

    The backslash in this case will escape the double quote (") and with warnings turned on you get this:

    Can't find string terminator '"' anywhere before EOF at C:\b\perlmonks\regex\ line 4.

    Without warnings you get "Bareword found where operator expected at ..."

    use strict; use warnings; my $str = "testing\\"; print "matched!" if $str =~ /\\$/;

      Lol Lotus1

      You are right. I did not test. Thanks

      All is well
