It's not a good idea and neither is what you said you wanted.
Granted.
It sounds like you're trying to do $text = eval qq["$text"].
Note: if the OP does decide to use eval() despite all the reasons not to then a heredoc is better than "" as it avoids sensativity to " characters in the data.
chop ( $text = eval "<<_EOD_$text\n_EOD_" );

This, of course, is stil confused by "\n_EOD_\n" in the data is still subject to all the dangers implicit in eval().
