I don't think there is any way to specify the field separator to
autosplit mode in Perl like you can in awk. If you do the split
yourself rather than use autosplit mode then you can specify the
pattern on which to split as an argument to the split function. I
am not a Perl expert but this is my understanding from reading
the manual I have.
