Perl e modifier
e modifier is used if you want the right-hand side of the substitution to be evaluated as code, instead of being treated as a string.
If there is a need to substitute the substring with a replacement string which is a regular expression to be evaluated,
the 'e' modifier is used. The 'e' modifier is placed at the end of the substitution expression.
That will replace anything that looks like a Perl scalar variable with the contents of that variable.
This is extremely useful for embedding values in a text file.
