The string has a literal qq() in it, since you don't want both a qq()
and a here-document at the same time. It's also got literal backslash-n
combinations where you need a newline.
You may use something like this to get your string, optionally including
some interpolated strings in this here-doc if you wish:
my $string = <<EOL;
tell application "Finder"
display dialog "Greetings from Perl!"
Good luck with it!
