meshgraphics has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to slurp in an html file with $scalars. How do I get them expanded when I print out the slurp.
open OUT, "< $Outy";

{ local $/ = undef; $Slurp = <OUT>; }

print "$Slurp";

    This should work:
    eval "print \"$Slurp\"\n"; # or print eval "\"$Slurp\"";
