in reply to Match the starting \>

You do not have to test the appearance of < and > bevor deleting them.

if (/</) { s/<//; }

does nothing different to

s/<//;

    ...does nothing different

    it could do something different, though, if you stick more closely to what the original code was:

    if (/</) { s/^<\s//; # remove "< " at beginning of line # ...do something with lines that do/did contain a '<' anywhere }

    (not sure whether that is what the OP intended, though...)
