After some coersion, your response led me down the proper path. Here's my updated code snippet:
my $match = pack 'H*', '53005f00560045005200530049004f004e005f004' . '9004e0046004f0000000000bd04effe00000100'; open(FILE,$file) or die $!; while (<FILE>) { if (/$match(\S{2})(\S{2})(\S{2})(\S{2})/) { print "Found match!"; print join('.',map {unpack 'H*',$_; } ($1,$2,$3,$4); } } close(FILE);
I think my confusion rested in how perl would handle a binary file. Seems that the DWIM held true... I was making it harder than it was.

Thanks for your help!

[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
[Lady_Aleena]: marioroy, nope, that IS the error.
[Discipulus]: oh to be distracted PM is still a wonderfull place
[Tanktalus]: Problem is, it's a test for another monk - as in, another monk letting me interview for his company :)
[Tanktalus]: He might see me here... :D
[Discipulus]: it's me? ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena could it be a quoting issue? I just tried find with -exec on the command line. find . -name "*.pl" -exec ls -l {} \;
[Tanktalus]: No, I know who he is, nice try. But if you're hiring, let me know :)
