Perl (Scripting) - Append values to a variable (.=)

Updated:   |  Perl (Scripting) articles

Let's say you have a variable that contains fruit.

my $fruit = "banana apple orange grape";


The .= operator can be used to append values to the end of the variable. In this example, pineapple will be appended to the $fruit variable.

$fruit .= "pineapple";


After pineapple has been appended, the variable can be printed.

print $fruit;


The original values in the variable plus pineapple will be printed.

banana apple orange grape pineapple
