That is odd...
#!/usr/bin/perl $string = "a\@b.c\n"; $string =~ s#\Qa@b.c\E#email-address#g; print $string; $string2 = "a\@b.c\n"; $string2 =~ s#a\@b\.c#email-address#g; print $string2; $string3 = "a\@b.c\n"; $qm3 = quotemeta('a@b.c'); $string3 =~ s#$qm3#email-address#g; print $string3;
a@b.c email-address email-address
So it seems that method won't work correctly. Perhaps another Monk can enlighten.

Corion suggests that \Q$var\E should work as normal; perhaps change the line that reads:
$code .= "s{\\Q$in\\E}{$out}g"
to read:
$code .= "\$var=quotemeta q{$in}; s{\$var}{$out}g"
for all to be well with the world. And it appears to, as well.

Update:D'oh, messed up the replacement line,fixed
Update:Corion once again points out that the reason for this is because @b gets interpolated before \Q takes effect. I should have realized this was the case.

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.
