And another option is to use the qr/$string/ syntax, which you can find in perlop.

Just a small annotation. This is only correct if it is supposed to be a general comment. The qr/$string/ construct has no influence on the escape issue whatsoever.

For the escaping see also quotemeta.

    Thanks a lot.

    As mentioned by you, 'qr' didn't work for me but I was able to get the desired results using 'quotemeta'.

[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
[davido]: when i do get to that point I think I'll do it in a vm snapshot just in case. :)
[oiskuu]: tye, you were right: loginuid/sessionid are part of task struct if compiled with AUDITSYSCALL. I have some doubts if you should actually depend on that feature.
[Corion]: oiskuu: Depends on what you want to do with that information
[tye]: I'm not depending on that feature. But I could in this environment. I'm using getlogin(). shrug
