( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To expand on AnomalousMonk's reply, which should save you a heap of typing in the future, HEREDOCs interpolate by default and double quotes do not need to be escaped. Neither do you need explicit line terminators. Note also that, unless you have used select to nominate a different filehandle, STDOUT is the default handle for output and does not need to be supplied to print. To stop interpolation do print <<'EOT'; instead, look at the documentation for more.

This script

use strict; use warnings; my $your_email_address = q{}; my $your_name = q{Fred Bloggs}; print <<EOT; <input type="hidden" name="your_email_address" value="$your_email_addr +ess"> <input type="hidden" name="your_name" value="$your_name"> EOT

Produces this output

<input type="hidden" name="your_email_address" value="fred.bloggs@wort"> <input type="hidden" name="your_name" value="Fred Bloggs">

I hope this is helpful.
