You can also use "do ''". This does (excuse me) the same kind of thing as eval can and more. Similar security concerns apply though. Update<\b> See for more info

    'do filename' won't work here because the op doesn't have a complete perl file but random text interspersed with perl code. I don't see 'do' do any filtering.
      No, quite right. Should have read it a bit more carefully so that I didn't miss the bit that said 'random text, not Perl'.
