in reply to search for '\' in perl

Please add these to the top of your code:

use strict; use warnings;

You are using doublequotes for the path so the backslash '\' is interpreted as an escape character for the next character. Try using single quotes. Also read perlretut, the perl regular expresion tutorial, especially the section about the 'g' modifier. Let us know what errors you get if you get stuck after trying these.
