A single-quoted, literal string. A backslash represents a backslash un
+less followed by the delimiter or another backslash, in which case th
+e delimiter or backslash is interpolated.
$foo = q!I said, "You said, 'She said it.'"!;
$bar = q('This is it.');
$baz = '\n'; # a two-character string
Evaluates to a list of the words extracted out of STRING, using embedd
+ed whitespace as the word delimiters. It can be understood as being r

split(' ', q/STRING/);
the differences being that it generates a real list at compile time, a
+nd in scalar context it returns the last element in the list. So this
qw(foo bar baz)
is semantically equivalent to the list:
'foo', 'bar', 'baz'
