in reply to Regex - Delimiter question

See perlop under 'Gory details of parsing quoted constructs' -> 'Removal of backslashes before delimiters'

With the '.' being the delimiter, the backslash before the dot is removed before the regex parser sees the expression. So your code is equivalent to s/.// which explains your result.
