my $blah = 'foo.Q'; print qq{gcc $blah -o @{[ substr $blah, 0, -2 ]} and many more }; __END__ gcc foo.Q -o foo and many more

See Re^2: How can we interpolate an expression??

See perlintro, perlrequick for the regex portion, and for the template, see (tye)Re: Stupid question (and one discussion of that template Re^2: RFC: Creating unicursal stars)

If you're going to be using qx, you might want to quote/escape vars (like filenames) with String::ShellQuote
