in reply to embedding a scalar into a string without space after the scalar

Gulliver,

I'm not sure this directly answers your question, but it does show another way to accomplish what I think you are trying to do:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper; my $tmp ='./tmp/'; my $filename_template = '%sfile%02d.zip'; my @zips = map { sprintf $filename_template, $tmp, $_ } (1 .. 5); print Dumper(\@zips);
__OUTPUT__ $VAR1 = [ './tmp/file01.zip', './tmp/file02.zip', './tmp/file03.zip', './tmp/file04.zip', './tmp/file05.zip' ];
I don't think it's a good idea to store the scalar in the string. Much better to provide a means to generate the name programmatically, IMHO.

What can be asserted without proof can be dismissed without proof. - Christopher Hitchens
