There is an error in the code for the "Field-end markers" (line -12) that
causes split to return _every_ character from the metadata line:

my $mark = '|';

should be:

my $mark = '|';

or

my $mark = "Q|";

For some reason, the backslash character was stripped from my previous
posting. Perhaps this will clarify:

my $mark = ' backslash | ' ;

or

my $mark = " backslash Q | " ;
