perl find and replace


Please could someone advise, how I can resolve this issue with my find and replace command :

perl -i -npe "s#RLM_LICENSE.*#RLM_LICENSE=$TEAM_TOP/licenses/abc.demo.lic#;"

$TEAM_TOP is an environment varible within my system.

when i run this perl command from a script and check the file. It displays the full path of $TEAM_TOP




I would need it to show this instead :


thank you
