in reply to regexp: s/// vs s"""

The first character following the s is used as a delimiter. If the character is normally paired, a matching pair is used.

s/match/replace/; #The conventional way s|match|replace|; #Useful for urls that contain /s s(match)(replace); #matched braces

This gives you some flexibility with respect to the code that you are working with. Take care when using characters that are also used in regex notation.
