The error message you speak of refers to * or ? appearing following nothing (or something that can't be repeated)...

m/?/ or m/*/ are the most simple ways to get the message. you want to use m/\Q$string_with_regex_chars_in\E/ or quotemeta to interpolate strings that contain regex meta-characters into a pattern.
