To clarify a little bit (I hope), Perl's strings are a string of bytes, which may or may not be a string of printable characters. When Perl is asked to print a string, it just outputs all of the bytes in the string, one after the other. In this case, the bytes are 0x41 0x42 0x43 0x44, which happen to be the ASCII character codes for ABCD.

Update: As pg mentions below, this terminology might be wrong in the face of Unicode. If, for the sake of this example, you temporarily pretend Unicode doesn't exist, hopefully this comment will still shed some additional light. :-)

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
