  • Simply adding a backslash in front of the embedded "}" character makes it work:
    sub Foo::show { print 'Foo::show' };
    my %class = ( 'name}' => 'Foo' );
    print qq{ $class{'name\}'}->show; #};
    Result:
    Foo->show; #
    • I forgot to add: escaping works for the single quoting q{} too.
      print q{ $class{'name\}'}->show; #};
      result:
      $class{'name}'}->show; #
      In this case, backslashes work as an escape character only for the closing delimiter, its pairing delimiter, and other backslashes.
      print q{\'\$\@\{\}\[\]\(\)\"\\};
      result:
      \'\$\@{}\[\]\(\)\"\
