You don't need to store these in separate variables to use them. Just access the right thing with param when you need it:

foreach my $number ( 1 .. 25 ) { my $value = param( "q$number"); print "q$number: $value\n"; # or, without $value # printf "q%d: %s\n", $number, param( "q$number" ); }

If you really must import these, you could use an array (since you know they are ordered). You can fill in the element with index 0 with undef just to keep the numbers straight.

my @array = ( undef, map { scalar param("q$_") } 1 .. 25 );

If you really wanted these things in a variable, you can use the CGI::import function to do it all at once. It ends up creating package variables though, so it's usually not a good idea.

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.
