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!

Discipulus anyway xp is still the best lowend game machine
[Discipulus]: both: everyting must be identical in the new v-machine
[Lady_Aleena]: So putting a nice DE or WM up on a Linux machine is not an option?
[Discipulus]: i need some converter to have directly an OVF format directly: at the moment i'm trying with vmware converter standalone
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know what to tell you. I can barely get my Linux machine to do things I want.
[Discipulus]: if DE or WM means desktop env and win manager.. no, not an option
[Lady_Aleena]: That's what they mean, at least to me. 8)
[Discipulus]: in the first attempt i failed, with an not usable v-machine.. ;=)
