in reply to Interpolating variables in JSON string

j0se:

I agree with the previous posters. However, it looks like you're just forgetting to put quotes around $USERNAME and $API_KEY. JSON is going to want quotes around string values, and you're just dropping them in without the quotes. You probably need:

my $json = quotemeta( {"auth":{"RAX-KSKEY:apiKeyCredentials":{"usernam +e":"$USERNAME", "apiKey":"$API_KEY"}}} );

So while this may get you going for now, just remember that it'll come back to bite you if you're not careful. Hence, the aforementioned suggestions.
