Or you can consider using Perl6::Form instead of format.[a]
This works for me:

use warnings; use strict; use Perl6::Form; my @systems = qw(SERVER1 SERVER2 SERVER3); foreach my $system (@systems) { print form "Now powering on : {|||||} {||||||}", $system, "[DONE]"; }
[a] Though I am with LanX on using printf if your initial script doesn't work like you want. Update

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
