q operator in Perl can be used in place of single quotes. It uses a set of parentheses to surround the string.

Syntax: q (string)

Returns: a single-quoted string.

Note: Any set of delimiters can be used, not just the parentheses.

Example 1:




#!/usr/bin/perl -w
  
# Passing string to q operator
print(q(Geeks For Geeks));

Output:

Geeks For Geeks

Example 2:




#!/usr/bin/perl -w
  
# Defining an Integer variable
$var = 25;
  
# Passing string and variable to 
# the q operator 
print(q(Welcome to GFG, $var));

Output:

Welcome to GFG, $var
