To the specific root-cause solutions offered by others, I would add that enabling warnings along with its good friend strict will let Perl at least give you some hints about problems like this:

c:\@Work\Perl\monks>perl -le "use warnings; use strict; ;; my $directory_name = 'foobar'; my $dir = \"C:\Users\darkblack\Desktop\A\.$directory_name\"; print qq{'$dir'}; " Unrecognized escape \d passed through at -e line 1. Unrecognized escape \D passed through at -e line 1. Unrecognized escape \A passed through at -e line 1. 'C:SERSDARKBLACKDESKTOPA.FOOBAR'
Also, see Quote and Quote-like Operators in perlop for double-quotish escapology info.

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.
