quotemeta is meant for regex metas which form a super-set of "string metas".

But what about the stringyfications from Data::Dumper (single quote) or Data::Dump (double quote)?

DB<62> use Data::Dumper qw/Dumper/ DB<63> $Data::Dumper::Terse = 1; DB<64> $x= Dumper q(It's\x\\) DB<65> print "<<<$x>>>" <<<'It\'s\\x\\' >>> DB<66> chomp $x DB<67> $x =~ s/^'(.*)'$/$1/ DB<68> print "<<<$x>>>" <<<It\'s\\x\\>>> DB<69>

NB: If you wanna use $Data::Dumper::Terse think of localizing it or use the OO interface ...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
