PERL execution inside shell script / replace in file

Okay, I have a function that was written in PERL, and I could try to convert it to shell but I think it would be easier just to use a PERL script and have it print the code into the shell, but I am having troubles getting it to work. Here is the PERL script:

encrypt.pl
---------------------------------------------
#!/usr/bin/perl

@palace_key = ( 55,197,96,114,205,165,11,6,209,249,203,60,87,12,13,27,121,30,45,114,180,4,179,96,178,128,221,137,160,237,242,132,124,250,196,153,159,39,237,222,108,222,30,184,72,52,100,41,118,165,1,134,33,11,191,176,153,237,32,45,117,66,76,106,192,117,126,137,51,0,101,130,3,4,147,61,87,74,170,47,165,213,116,189,215,49,218,131,150,226,24,89,238,32,83,36,61,136,171,119,74,153,185,4,225,211,157,208,137,191,137,68,50,100,199,46,147,51,213,107,41,149,187,59,130,150,61,96,38,208,132,91,69,90,139,76,90,60,91,138,88,148,184,155,19,219,107,190,26,10,96,115,116,85,231,89,176,186,68,118,172,226,133,22,196,16,83,151,56,192,238,168,6,66,169,27,189,210,151,226,221,37,218,165,68,199,32,81,58,251,146,148,23,113,47,2,85,96,150,181,38,76,87,247,139,70,120,25,226,182,96,143,208,247,148,105,4,45,197,65,210,64,131,137,103,199,238,245,93,167,137,49,215,146,82,87,216,167,16,246,211,20,138,18,118,127,26,226,23,213,177,255,126,130,216,50,179,137,29,178,68,106,120,175,15,35,249,100,122,59,122,19,33,80,134,128,7,71,152,188,132,36,110,224,171,132,222,220,1,32,237,3,2,153,163,47,158,137,103,3,105,197,165,46,18,177,84,95,211,54,249,128,220,55,95,35,105,178,203,57,153,123,233,89,99,40,9,5,182,146,170,69,121,84,212,227,45,107,108,90,167,41,231,108,102,149,64,201,45,206,51,57,85,102,202,126,209,122,192,32,64,9,78,41,179,222,9,205,153,174,251,24,173,115,213,126,186,2,91,143,92,163,249,169,43,242,99,222,152,47,38,153,40,202,190,239,119,114,174,200,93,41,114,108,42,24,59,139,161,21,172,30,93,9,72,125,221,44,171,138,7,228,74,164,107,150,17,136,205,156,48,21,207,85,18,241,130,76,4,36,236,168,174,210,28,46,28,18,66,154,232,32,100,92,191,222,232,244,229,76,119,228,81,176,38,218,167,134,243,16,180,134,232,14,121,145,78,222,117,123,213,209,215,170,22,189,91,3,165,49,56,147,51,102,242,14,111,16,168,216,53,149,80,45,161,63,253,6,9,144,134,204 );

sub palace_encrypt
{
local $lastchar = 0;
local $rc = 0;
local @bs;
for($i=length($_[0])-1; $i>=0; $i--) {
      local $b = ord(substr($_[0], $i, 1));
      $bs[$i] = $b ^ $palace_key[$rc++] ^ $lastchar;
      $lastchar = $bs[$i] ^ $palace_key[$rc++];
      }
return join("", map { chr($_) } @bs);
}

sub encode_escaped
{
local $str = $_[0];
$str =~ s/\\/\\\\/g;
$str =~ s/([^A-Za-z0-9\.\\])/sprintf("\\%2.2X", ord($1))/ge;
return $str;
}

print &encode_escaped(&palace_encrypt($ARGV[0]));

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am trying to use the encrypted output inside a shell script that will replace
OWNERPASSWORD "X"
with
OWNERPASSWORD "encyptedstring"

where encryptedstring is the return of &encode_escaped(&palace_encrypt($ARGV[0]))


The problem is that I try to run perl -e encrypt.pl owner and it doesnt seem to correctly work. I realize it might just be easier to do the whole thing in PERL, which is acceptable. But everything I read on search/replace in a file for PERL is all one-liners for the linux command line and not really for PERL script.

This does not correctly store the output of the perl script to ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD, it also does not correctly use the ENCRYPTEDPASSWORD in the sed command either.

Okay, but this just prints the word "$ESCAPEDPASSWORD"    whereas it should be "5\8DT\85E" when using the word owner.

Sorry, I thought I had typed
sed  's/OWNERPASSWORD "X"/OWNERPASSWORD "'"$ESCAPEDPASSWORD"'"/g'
