what about the backslash, do you really want quotemetas behavior?

DB<26> x q(It's\ ) 0 'It\'s\\ ' DB<27> x quotemeta q(It's\ ) 0 'It\\\'s\\\\\\ ' ... DB<29> x quotemeta q(It's\x) 0 'It\\\'s\\\\x'

FWIW you can write a regex which consumes every paired backslash in an or'ed condition before replacing single quotes/backslashes.

But a real test-cases are imperative here.

update

this shows that the input format should be well defined too

DB<37> dd quotemeta q(It's\x\\) "It\\'s\\\\x\\\\"

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
