in reply to grep not working as expected

I expect perl is just not DWIM-ing your method call in the regex:


I think perl's regex patterns are similar to a qq() string in regards to interpolation (i.e. you can't interpolate function calls), but I can't immediately find any documentation to back up that assertion.
