But of course, there is no reason to ever use \Z (uppercase)--because you can just use \z (lowercase) and specify the \n in your regex:

/$my_regex \n \z/xms

...which makes it clearer what you are doing.

When you are having regex problems, the first thing you want to do is nail down what is in your string:

my $str = "123dog\n"; say "-->$str<--"; --output:-- -->123dog <--
Or, to reveal the ord() of each character in the string:
printf "%vd", $my_str; --output:-- #6 ascii chars in '123dog', but outputs 7 codes. #Checking an ascii chart for the code 10: #line feed. Ah hah, I forgot to chomp() #the string!
