in thread Matching @ in string

OK, so I was missing something obvious.

But if I don't want to modify the string by escaping the @ and I want to run program as a one-liner, how do I do it if I can't escape the single quotes as you point out here?

Thanks,

loris

    Try: ...

    perl -e "print 'h@t'=~ /\@/g"
    or even
    echo 'h@t' | perl -ne 'print /\@/g'

    ... depending on the type of problem you are about to solve.
