String interpolation while using backreference and capturing in perl.

my $PATH="/home/test.txt";
my $Filename2="/home/read.txt";

open(TEST, "< $PATH");
my @array = <TEST>;
my $line;

foreach $line (@array)

        # ***************This line works !!
        open(FH, "< $Filename2");
        my @srcstr = <FH>;
        chomp @srcstr;

        if ( $line =~ /$srcstr[0]/ ) {
                print "Matched string= $&";
                print "Changed string= $srcstr[1]\n ";



I am not able to print the captured string in "Changed string".
Interpolation is not happening while reading from file.

I solved it.

The changed string must be assigned as, eval(qq/$srcstr[1]/).

This adds double quote and then evaluates the string.
