in reply to Regular expression "replace string interpolation" problem

What is likely confusing is that both of these statements yield the same result:
$text2 =~ s/$match/$replace/; $text2 =~ s/$match/$replace/e;
The evaluation done in the second substitution replaces the variable interpolation that is taking place in the first substitution.
