Hmm not really equivalent because of the pre-escaping you'd need to do to get the string into perl unmolested. I challenge you to write a one liner that'll work with an arbitrary length string from STDIN :P

Also, I hate Perl, with a passion. Any time I write some I feel dirty, and it always comes out looking like someone vomited in the text editor.
