in thread Unrecognized escape \Q passed through in regex

But if they "just mean" Q and E, why does perl gives me an error when it (*) sees them ?

(*) offtopic: I was about to type "he" instead of "it" :-)

    It's not an error, it's a warning. It's a warning because you escape things because you expect them to be special. Perl is telling you that you were wrong and that they aren't.
