No, please don't, as documented in Warning on \1 Instead of $1.

With warnings enabled, you are warned about that.

echo "Hello Dolly" | perl -wlpe "s/l(lo)/\1/g" \1 better written as $1 at -e line 1.

It's better to check how to quote correctly in your shell.

The following should prevent shell's (sh, bash) interpolation of $1 as well:

echo "Hello Dolly" | perl -wlpe "s/l(lo)/\$1/g"
