quotemeta - quote regular expression magic characters


Returns the value of EXPR with all non-alphanumeric characters
backslashed. (That is, all characters not matching /[A-Za-z_0-9]/ will
be preceded by a backslash in the returned string

The point is that characters not matching /[A-Za-z_0-9]/ aren't regular
expression magic characters... (doble quote is not, equal sign is not,
etc. etc.)

Sorry if I posted this report in the wrong place, but I didn't find any
email address for perl documentation related things... And of course
sorry if I'm wrong...

Thanks for you interest, Giuliano
