If you use next, there is no need to use else: the code after next can only be reached if the condition was not true.

You do not want to use eval BLOCK to catch exceptions. You want to use eval STRING to evaluate a constructed code. You should include the assignment in the code, though:

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my $sql_var_hr; $sql_var_hr->{col_name} = 'column_name'; my $sql = get_sql($sql_var_hr); sub get_sql { my ($vars) = @_; my $sql; while (my $iline = <DATA>) { next if $iline =~ /^#/; $sql .= $iline; } print "pre_eval: $sql\n"; eval '$sql = "' . $sql . '"' or warn $@; print "post_eval: $sql\n"; return $sql; } __DATA__ select $vars->{col_name} from schema.table select $$vars{col_name} from schema.table
Using "templates" might solve lots of problems this nave approach might cause.
