  Description     : String::Interpolate - Wrapper for builtin the Perl 
interpolation engine

String::Interpolate provides a neat interface to the solution to that
perenial Perl problem - how to invoke the Perl string interpolation
engine on a string contained in a scalar variable.

Is there a reason this hasn't been packaged?  Does another module
offer the same capability.

I need this to store a regex pattern and do a substitution, e.g.:

my $r = "CBA:$1";

(The patterns are provided by the user in a config file.)
