in reply to Re^3: using split
in thread using split

And the difference between "..." and /.../ is that "..." unescapes too much.

For example,
"\d" is the same as /d/.
If you want /\d/, the equivalent would be "\\d".

I always use /.../ or qr/.../ to avoid confusion.

    Yes. I never use "...", preferring m[...] instead. Using '...' for a regex is simply shorthand for m'...' which gives the same, non-interpolating behaviour.

    A bad habit? Maybe...
