11 perlre: Perl regular expressions

This chapter describes the syntax of regular expressions in Perl.

If you haven't used regular expressions before, a quick-start introduction is available in perlrequick, and a longer tutorial introduction is available in "Perl regular expressions tutorial" (perlretut) in Perl Tutorials.

For reference on how regular expressions are used in matching operations, plus various examples of the same, see discussions of m//, s///, qr// and ?? in 7.30.
