Are you reading these in from a file and seeing that their not changed in the file ?
If so, try this recipe for in-place editing
The -i flag tells perl to make changes (like regex substitutions) in the original file, dont make a backup
The -pe is two options joined together - -p is print every line in the supplied file back out to itself (thats what -i and -p together do - print every line back to the same file)
The -e tells perl to apply the regex to every line in the file - and hence the "t lines become "GC_t before being printed back out.
You can find more options like these in "perldoc perlrun", or Perl Command-Line Options.
