in reply to regex pattern match

Oh .. i'm sorry ,...
The problem was with the regex replacing the directory path within the double quotes.$current_path and $new_path are two variables that i need for substitution.Then i perform a simple regex substitution. However, the double quotes and backslash made it extra hard to perform regex matching .. . The answer may not look great but it works.!!
$line =~s/\Q$current_path/$new_path\E/ig;
