in thread quotes in Perl

just about any punctuation mark

Actually, you can use almost any character, not just punctuation. The only thing is, with alpha delimiters, you need a space between the operator and the delimiter. This can be used for all manner of nefarious purposes. Quick example:

$_ = qq qHelloq; s sHss; print y yyyc;
