If the interpreter implemented the interpolation you are specifying, then how could I as a programmer make it output the string Product is 5 * 3? There'd be some pretty non-intuitive side effects.

Kenosis below has given you a way to be clever, but this is all getting a little clever for my taste. For complex output, I usually prefer going all the way to printf since, after all, you desire a formatted print. So maybe printf "number is %d\n", $number * $multiplier;. toolic's solution still strikes me as pretty clean as well.

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    [Eily]: what? Does that mean we can't blame LanX when he's there?
    [marto]: but 5 in total, is odd, where as 10 is even
    [marto]: sure, we can blame LanX when he is around, but he is more likely to moan about it :P
    [Eily]: there's 6 in total though :P
    [Eily]: unless LanX did something to maths when I wasn't looking
    [choroba]: Maybe the first four got downvoted and were deleted from the list?
