in reply to Uer Perl Variable in txt file

I don't feel that I understand what you are getting, based on the snippet of source code that I see ... but here is one important thing to keep in mind: the difference between single and double quotes.

A string such as 'This is $name' will be output literally as it appears, whereas a string in double quotes such as "This is $name" will have the variable-name interpolated.   That is, if $name is Fred, you get:   This is Fred in the second case but not the first.

    I have a file which has contents like this

    ______file.txt_______
    I am $name
    I am from $city
    I live $food
    I got $car


    Using perl code I am reading line one by one from file.txt. When I print line using $_ it does not replace variable in text file with variable values in .pl file but it prints the line as it is.

    Because this is external data, the interpreter will not interpolate variables
