in reply to I think I'm starting to get it

If perl only interpolated strings once, you couldn't do stuff like...

Maybe I'm completely off track and aren't understanding what you are saying. But since when does it interpolate twice?

Your example there just gives me:

can I get you a $bar? can I get you a $bar?
I was under the impression that you could *only* interpolate within double quotations. (well, and a few other things). If you really did want it to interpolate twice there are some pointers at: Double Interpolation of a String.

Also if you are dealing with win9x, most of the time c:/windows/desktop should function the same way as c:\\windows\\desktop. (unfortunately this seems to have changed in 2k, or maybe its an NT thing..)
