Have a read about quoting to see why the variable isn't interpolated. Also, never say "it didn't work" as a bug report - that's pretty much content-free.

    Below is the code for and it printed the variable to a output file:test.txt. But it could not replace with the variable(${filedt} in file name)

    #!/usr/bin/perl use Time::Piece; use warnings; use strict; my $file='test.txt'; open STDOUT, ">", $file or die "$0: open: $!"; open STDERR, ">&STDOUT" or die "$0: dup: $!"; my $filedt = localtime->strftime('%Y%m%d'); print $filedt; #my $infile = '/home/vmeruga_alt/EXEC_${filedt}.txt';
