in thread Uer Perl Variable in txt file

Or even

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my %replace = (name => 'Joe', fun => 'a game'); my $search_for = join '|', map quotemeta, keys %replace; while (<DATA>) { s/\$($search_for)/$replace{$1}/g; print; }

I avoid nested loops where possible.

    my $search_for = join '|', map quotemeta, keys %replace; ... s/\$($search_for)/$replace{$1}/g;
    when doing things like this and you have two hash keys "foo" and "foobar", either use \b in the regex if possible, or sort the hash keys for length before joining. otherwise $foobar could be replaced with the value of $replace{foo}.
