    if ($str2 =~ /\Q$str1\E/) #\Q...\E means like qr #don't interpret characters #like '(' within $str1 #use them verbatim

    To avoid misunderstanding, you might also consider removing "like qr" from the foregoing comment, or possibly changing to something like "means, as when used in qr, to avoid interpreting characters like ...".
