in reply to Reading from/writing to files with variables substitutions

Hi Oukz,
Really, aitap's wisdom for me is the way to go, however, if I may suggest using here-document like so:

use warnings; use strict; my $first_name = "James"; my $company = "SoftLayer"; my $letter = << "COMPANY_LETTER"; Hello $first_name. I'm writing on behalf of $company .... COMPANY_LETTER my $outfile = "new.txt"; open my $fh, '>', $outfile or die "Can't open file: $!"; print $fh $letter; close $fh or die "can't close file: $!";

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