Escape characters can be a bitch.  I assume you want to match
strings like '\something.pl' but not '\\server\host\whatever.pl'

The backslash has a special meaning. It tells the software to use
the next character without a special meaning (if any).  So, to scan
for a backslash, you have to type two of them. You are now starting
a range (with '[') containing, amongst other characters, the ']' char.

It should probably be something like /\\[^\\]*\.(cgi|pl)$/
although I'm not sure that this is safe!
