Ah, looks like you've stumbled into a perl parsing trap:

s||$1[/|

This code tries to interpolate the @1 array, the index starts with a slash, parsed as the begin of a matching pattern, but missing the closing slash, that's why you get the Search pattern not terminated error. Escaping the [ with a backslash should make all things fine.
