in reply to how to to find the "/" in a string

Not sure if I'm understanding the problem. You can search for a special character putting a "\" before "my_special_character"

count=0, while ($html =~ [aug<\/td>]g) { $count++ }

    count=0, while ($html =~ [aug<\/td>]g) { $count++ }

    Please don't post code that won't work – or, in this case, even compile. (Or if the code is untested, please flag the fact prominently.) A beginning Perler, even one as reluctant as robertw to read basic documentation, deserves better of us.

    >perl -wMstrict -le "my $html = 'xxx aug</td> yyy aug</td> zzz'; ;; my $count = 0; while ($html =~ m[aug</td>]g) { $count++ } print $count; ;; my $count2 =()= $html =~ m{ aug</td> }xmsg; print $count2; " 2 2
