1.frankline unfortunately, your substition gives an incorrect sub for the case \*/, which also appears in the ascii art because it produces an extra '\' where there should be only 1
Here is the art btw:

my $xmas = q% __,_,_,___) _______ + (--| | | (--/ ),_) ,_) + | | | _ ,_,_ | |_ ,_ ' , _|_,_,_, _ , + __| | | (/_| | (_| | | || |/_)_| | | |(_|/_)___, + ( |___, ,__| \____) |__, |__, + + | _...._ + \ _ / .::o:::::. + (\o/) .:::'''':o:. + --- / \ --- :o:_ _::: + >*< `:}_>()<_{:' + >0<@< @ `'//\\'` @ + >>>@<<* @ # // \\ # @ + >@>*<0<<< __#_#____/'____'\____#_#__ + >*>>@<<<@<< [__________________________ +] >@>>0<<<*<<@< |=_- .-/\ /\ /\ /\--. =_-| + >*>>0<<@<<<@<<< |-_= | \ \\ \\ \\ \ |-_=-| + >@>>*<<@<>*<<0<*< |_=-=| / // // // / |_=-_| + \*/ >0>>*<<@<>0><<*<@<< |=_- |`-'`-'`-'`-' |=_=-| + ___\\U//___ >*>>@><0<<*>>@><*<0<< | =_-| o o |_==_| + |\\ | | \\| >@>>0<*<<0>>@<<0<<<*<@< |=_- | !

I solved the problem by using the suggestion of moving the art into __DATA__ using $xmas = <DATA>; The follow on posts were because I think that this behavior is broken for the case of single versus double quoted strings, but thanks for trying.
