in reply to Pearls (not really) of Perl programming

We use custom tags (%B% = start bold, /B/ = end bold and others) for reports that are printed on both the internet and a high speed printer. The data for these reports is pulled from several (more then 7) files and at each of these I found:

s/\%B\%/<b>/g; s/\/B\//<\/b>/g;

seems the writter didn't know about subs and \Q\E or quotemeta() ;)

    Seems kutsu doesn't know about using a seperator other than / ;) Neither \Q\E nor quotemeta() are needed here.

    s#%B%#<b>#g; s#/B/#</b>#g;
