$query =~ s/$value/$replace/i;

The problem is that $value contains something like $Id, and the $ when interpreted as a regex means "match the end of the string", not "match a dollar sign". You can fix that by writing



Fwiw this is how I'd solve the same task:

my @array_1 = ("\$Id_run_query=1", "\$name_run_query=xyz", "db_query_r +un_query=select * from meter where metetid=\$Id and metername=\$name" +); my $query; my %replace; foreach(@array_1){ if (m/^db_query_run_query=(.*)/i){ $query = $1 } elsif (/(\$\S+)_run_query=(.*)/) { $replace{$1} = $2; } } my $replace_re = join '|', map quotemeta, keys %replace; $query =~ s/($replace_re)/$replace{$1}/ig; print "===>$query\n";

The call to quotemeta does the same as \Q...\E in the regex.
