in reply to concatenating variables

Very quick answer : don't 'forge' variable name. Use an array. If you realy need to 'forge' name, use an hash:

my %names; $names{$linename.$counter} = "use pricedb;" ;

With an array:

#my $line1 = "use pricedb;"; my @lines = ( "use pricedb;" , "..." , "..." , ); for my $counter (1 .. 10) { my $rowsaffected = $dbh ->do($lines[$counter]); #...

Better, without $counter:

for my $line (@lines) { my $rowsaffected = $dbh ->do($line); #...
