comment Perl command not found
It's not in /usr/bin, there should be at least a symlink in there. So it's more likely to not be installed rather than the PATH being wrong.

comment Substitution in text file **without** regular expressions
I'm not sure this answer is useful... The only difference between s||| and s/// is that the seperator character is different and so that one character doesn't need escaping. You could equally do s###. The real issue here is that the OP doesn't want to have to worry about escaping the contents of literal_pattern (which is not literal at all and will be interpreted as a regex).

comment Use of hash (#) on OS X with UK MacBook Pro
I had this exact problem, threw the stupid US keyboard that came with the Mac in the bin and plugged a Windows keyboard with a £ sign into my Mac. Worked great with vim! ;-)
