You can but there are two problems with your code. First, variables are not interpolated inside qw{ ... } so you are just getting the literal variable name so you need to set up the hash using key/value pairs in a list. Second, you need to disambiguate the $dw from the '_VAR' because $dw_VAR is also a valid variable name; you can do this by saying ${dw}_ARG. You are setting up a hash reference and it is probably less confusing if you use the { key => value, ... } anonymous hash constructor.

It is a good idea to always do use strict; and use warnings at the top of your code. That would help you catch things like undeclared variables.

use strict; use warnings; my $dw = q{dw_urg}; my $dw_TG = { var => qq{${dw}_VAR}, str => qq{${dw}_STR}, mkt => qq{${dw}_MKT}, };

I hope this is useful.

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.
