in reply to providing filenames dynamically

You have to change your code like,

print "file1 ="; $file1=<stdin>; print "file2 =" ; $file2=<stdin>; @ARGV = ("$file1", "$file2") ; chomp($remove = <stdin>); chomp($replace = <stdin>); while(defined($line=<>)){ $line =~ s/$remove/$replace/g; print "$line"; }
When your code seems not giving the expected result, you can use the perl debugger to find out issue.
I debugged the code, after made the change from {} to ()
main::(./dynamic_file.pl:22): print "file1 ="; DB<1> n main::(./dynamic_file.pl:23): $file1=<stdin>; DB<1> n file1 =file1 main::(./dynamic_file.pl:24): print "file2 =" ; DB<1> n main::(./dynamic_file.pl:25): $file2=<stdin>; DB<1> n file2 =file2 main::(./dynamic_file.pl:26): @ARGV = ("$file1", "$file2") ; DB<1> n main::(./dynamic_file.pl:27): chomp($remove = <stdin>); DB<1> p @ARGV file1 file2
