in thread question regarding "Tie" in Perl

However, this implementation has advantage of using the tied variable as constant in a string which can be interpolated.

And the benefit of interpolating a compile-time constant into a string at runtime is?

use constant AVO => 6; ... print "The constant is " . AVO . "\n";

Or

printf "The constant is %d\n", AVO; print "The constant is ${ \AVO }";;
