And another option is to use the qr/$string/ syntax, which you can find in perlop.

Just a small annotation. This is only correct if it is supposed to be a general comment. The qr/$string/ construct has no influence on the escape issue whatsoever.

For the escaping see also quotemeta.

    Thanks a lot.

    As mentioned by you, 'qr' didn't work for me but I was able to get the desired results using 'quotemeta'.
