jjdeterick has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a basic question about the GREP function. I'm trying to grep a file for the pattern "[1]", but GREP is interpreting the [ and ] characters. I tried 'grep /\[1/\] filename' and that does not work either. Any help is greatly appreciated!
