What is next doing there? Also, /g might be needed if variables can be repeated on lines; and it gets very tricky if a variable's name is a part of other variable's name:

my car is $car_colour $car

    Aaaarghhhhh. Good catch! Thank you.

    next is a left-over (forgetfully 'unremoved') from an alternate approach which was later abandoned.

    As to the possibility of multiple variables with similar name_parts -- all on a single line: that's not something I considered, as it appears to be outside the OP's spec. Oversight aside, however, that does indeed make the coding a little tricky...
          ... perhaps something like this [added to prev code and, yes, with the next removed :-)]:

    say "\tDone with source and sink files\n"; $/ = "\n"; # restore record separator my @choroba = ('choroba my car -- a $car -- is $car_colour. Choroba-', 'choroba my car2 is $car_colour $car. Choroba-', 'choroba my car3 is $car_colour $car Choroba-', 'choroba my car4 is $car_colour and |secondinstance: $ca +r_colour| |firstinstance:$car| Choroba-', ); for (@choroba) { if ( $_ =~ /choroba/ .. /Choroba-/ ) { s/choroba/ /; # ... s/Choroba-/ /; # or set record separator s/\$car_colour/red/g; # yup, need the g s/\$car[^_]{1}/ford/; say $_; } }
    which produces terminal output:
    Done with source and sink files my car -- a ford-- is red. my car2 is red ford my car3 is red ford my car4 is red and |secondinstance: red| |firstinstance:ford
