[Pdx-pm] Escaping a character in a string from a file

I have a file of regular expressions I want to match. I read in the file
and then match each entry as such:
if ($something =~ /$tomatch/i)
I want to be able to specify something like ".pl" in the file so that I can
match all perl files. Specifying .pl matches .apl. Is there a way I can
escape the "." when it is in a file? I tried "\.pl", but it didn't work.
Any pointers would be very much appreciated.
