in reply to regex error puzzle

It's actually the next regex that perl is complaining about.

Try changing the second to s/\Q$delete_candidate//; in order to escape the asterisks.

Update: Recounted line numbers... the regex in question is on line 10.

Update 2: Originally thought the error gave the line of the if statement... tye posted a correction while I was posting the first update.

    perl reports any error on line 10, the first line of the if block

    No, line 10 isn't the first line of the 'if' block. Perl does report misleading line numbers for some errors in 'if' blocks, but this is restricted to saying that errors in an 'elsif' conditional expression occurred on the line of the matching 'if'.
