in reply to Print the Global special constant Variable

If you absolutely must interpolate the constant (I'm not sure why, and what's wrong with your first solution using concatenation...), you can say:

print "This is the package => ${\__PACKAGE__} <="; # or print "This is the package => @{[__PACKAGE__]} <=";

The idea is just to create a reference to whatever you want to interpolate, and then dereference it using the double-quote-interpolated sigils ${...} or @{...}.
