[vox-tech] Using Perl to Find and Replace

I am working on a cdrom 'snapshot' of a website I help
maintain for use at demos where there is no network

Practically every page uses server side includes.

I need to scan through an html file for expressions of
the following format:

   #include virtual=

and replace the expression:

   #include virtual=

with the contents of 'filename'.  I know how to use
Perl to scan through a file for a specified regular
expression and replace it (thank to an earlier post -
you guys are awesome!) but I'm lost as to how to
locate regular expressions of the given pattern,
interpret a portion of it as the name of a file, then
extract that file's content and replace the original

Perl, anyone...? ;-)
