One lamented aspect of Perl is that regexes get really hard to read. ....

If you learn to regex, they're really easy to read :)

why not use a sigil ...

Because its not on the standard keyboard!

Also, its a delimiter not a sigil

Which is why I prefer to use @ for quoting like s@@@ </sarcasm>

But seriously, this is exactly why i prefer \ or

$ perl -MO=Deparse -e " s\\\g " s///g; -e syntax OK $ perl -MO=Deparse -e " sg " s///g; -e syntax OK
or even </sarcasm>

But seriously, between balanced delimiters like

perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}//g " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}\\g " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}vvg " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}()g " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}[]g " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s {}<>g " perl -MO=Deparse -e " s<><>g "

I stick to keyboard characters

and the special case s'''x

The x means magic

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
