In PHP, I can write:
$vname = 'phone'; $$vname = '555-1234'; print $phone;
… And the script will output "555-1234".
Is there any equivalent in Perl?
Is there any way to constrain
$phone to the scope of the local block, as if I'd written
my $phone? Using
my $$vname gives me "Can't declare scalar dereference in my at …" errors.
