I routinely generate rows of tab-separated data like this;

my @array = ( "boris", "natasha", "rocky", "bullwinkle"); print join "t", @array, "n";

However this code inserts an extra tab between bullwinkle and the newline character. So when it is important I do this instead:print join "t", @array;print "n";
I suppose you could put both statements on a single line. Is there a simpler/faster way to generate this output: boristnatashatrockytbullwinklen?

I am using constant mainly to enable printing of debugging messages (e.g. use constant DEBUGGING_L1 => 0;)

Normally, the value is '0' and when I need to see debug messages, I make this 1 and run the script. Is there a way to allocate value to constants at run time so that I can avoid editing the script again and again?

Also, is there a better way to handle debugging?
