I am having a an array like
@array=('a.txt','b.txt',c.txt);
i want to convert the extension of these files to .pl

I did like
foreach  @array
{
tr /.*.tx/.*.p/;
print $_."\n";
}

But it is printing like
a.plp
b.plp
c.plp
How can i print like a.pl,b.pl,c.pl

the tr command replaces each letter of its first argument with the corresponding letter in the replacement string. It is not a regular expression. I think what you are after was this:

s/\.txt$/.pl/;
instead.
