Regardless of how you think you could at least test stuff.

for (0..255) { print "$_=" . chr($_) . "\n" if chr($_) =~ /;/i };

That should print 59=; out showing that /;/i is only matching ; and not lowercase ;, whatever that would be.

print uc(';'), lc(';'); #outputs ;;

FYI I like to use perl -dex (as recommended by tye I think) which gives you a nice way to run perl code and see its results.
