Welcome to PerlMonks and Happy New Year!

It looks like you might be confusing variable names and strings. "$pax_$plus" simply creates a string. If $pax is "foo", and $plus is "100", then "$pax_$plus" creates the string "foo_100" "100" , not the variable $foo_100. (see moritz's reply below for why the resulting string is "100" and not "foo_100")

When you want to retrieve data associated with a series of consecutive numbers (i.e. 1 to 4), you need to use an array, like this:

# use these lines at the start to get Perl help you find # bugs use strict; use warnings; # Note: declare your variables with "my" # This helps Perl catch any misspellings in variable names # and reminds you to set initial values for everything # price for 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 persons my @pax = (0, 100, 260, 300, 450); my $plus = 1; my $currencycode = 'ZAR'; my $sleeps=''; my $maxadults = 4; while ($maxadults >= $plus) { my $paxing = $pax[$plus]; #get $plus member of @pax array $sleeps = $sleeps . "$currencycode$paxing for $plus persons<br>"; $plus++; }

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.
