in reply to Variable in a string

You can build your name in stages:

my $file_name = "CAC1Bvariant"; $file_name .= $variable; $file_name .= '_fasta.txt';
I think it's a little easier on the maintenance programmer's eyes, and it high-lights the fact that the varying part of the name is in the middle of the string.

    Might this be even easier on the eyes?

    my $file_name = 'CAC1Bvariant' . $variable . '_fasta.txt';
