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


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 = ''; my @zips = map { sprintf $filename_template, $tmp, $_ } (1 .. 5); print Dumper(\@zips);
__OUTPUT__ $VAR1 = [ './tmp/', './tmp/', './tmp/', './tmp/', './tmp/' ];
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.
