      Sometimes I will want to do a simple search and replace on a string that contains characters that I have to escape, eg. for '$foo->{bar}[0]', I would have to use '\$foo->{bar}\[0\]'. I try not to use the various magic types, because it's difficult to remember them, and it's recommended to not change the default magic setting. Is there a way I can do 's/$foo->{bar}[0]/foobar/' and have it not treat any characters as special, ie. treat the search string as all literal?
