in reply to loop to allocate values to variables

Greetings travisbickle34,

First off, I would strongly recommend you try to redesign your code a bit to not require this. As merlyn likes to point out, when you have to define 20 variables with my, something's wrong. However, if you must do it this way, you could try:

no strict; no warnings; my %variables = ( '_blastresult' => 1138, 'skip_me' => 0, '_stormtroopers' => 42 ); foreach (keys %variables) { eval '$' . $1 . ' = ' . $variables{$_} if (/^_(.*)/s); } print $blastresult;

Could you post a little bit more of the problem you're trying to solve? I'd rather recommend a better way than what I've posted above.
