in reply to searching characters

You can use the tr operator:

return 0 if (($line =~ tr/$base/$base/) >= $limit);

    tr/// doesn't interpolate. You could use m// or s/// instead.
    return 0 if ( () = $line =~ /\Q$base/g ) >= $limit;
    return 0 if ( $line =~ s/\Q$base//g ) >= $limit;

    tr doesn't do interpolation:
    my $line = "ABABABAB"; my $limit = 3; my $base = "A"; say "Yes 1" if $line =~ tr/$base/$base/ >= $limit; say "Yes 2" if eval "\$line =~ tr/$base/$base/" >= $limit; __END__ Yes 2
    You need an eval to interpolate.
