in reply to backticks execution "inside" variable (string)

Not answering your more general question (which I don't understand), but note that you can easily generate a log file name with the current date/time in it with simple Perl. For example:

sub get_datestamp { my ($s, $m, $h, $d, $mon, $y) = localtime; sprintf('%02d%02d%04d', $d, $mon + 1, $y + 1900); } my $logfile = 'filename_' . get_datestamp() . '.log'; print "logfile='$logfile'\n";
This code works on any platform and has no need to interpolate bash command lines.
