perl allows you to specify any character as the regexp seperator. / is just a suggestion and I guess is most widely used? Either way the perldocs say you can use m## just as easy as m// if, for instance you wanted to match a string that had a lot of /'s in it and didn't want to \/ them all - m#///# would work and is a little easier to read than m/\/\/\//.
