in reply to use strict

Why not consider using a hash? If I understand you correctly you want to assign to variables that have names you don't now in advance.

use strict; my @interests = ( "foo", "bar", "blah"); my %hash; foreach (@interests) { $hash{$_} = "My interest is $_"; } foreach (keys %hash) { print "$hash{$_}\n"; }

Hope this helps, -gjb-

Update: Thanks dragonchild for pointing out a typo (%hash rather than @interests in the last foreach)
