in reply to Template::Toolkit: better way to generate variable names?

Did you try this?

[% foo_1 = 'value1' foo_2 = 'value2' foo_3 = 'value3' foo_4 = 'value4' foo_5 = 'value5' %] [% FOREACH n = [ 1 .. 5 ] %] [% 'foo_' _ n %] is [% ${ "foo_$n" } %] [% END %]
Anyway, apply here the usual arguments against variable variable names. Use a hash or an array, if you can.

Update: I misread the question. See geektron's reply.

    i really don't need a hash or array in this case.

    if it were straight perl, i would have done:

    foreach my $counterVar ( 1 .. 5 ) { $foo = "string" . $counterVar; }
    the issue was with the TT meta-language, really. it *can* get a bit odd...

    what i *do* need out of the suggestion is:

    [% SET FOO = 'string' _$n %]
    -- i do need to double-check the underscore location ... --

    after reading the previous reply, the connection between TT's meta-language and 'core perl' kicked in.
