Just escape them via the quotemeta() function or, better yet, using \Q and \E:
$re = qr(/($<!\Q$a\E)\Q$b\E/);

[Discipulus]: no no seriously, redss posed a good question in the right moment, and you gave as always wonderful answers
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus my comment was about how to fork & join in tk?
[marioroy]: Oh, I've might of missed Discipulus's earlier response. I had gone to bed.
[Tanktalus]: ah, I don't even have the perlmonks site open in my browser :)
Tanktalus is chatting through his cbstats application :)
[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
