Yeah, If you want to replace the whole line just do:
$_ = "Address_v2\n";
Are you mixing
$_ =~ s/this/that/;

w/ your:
s/$_/Address_v2/; syntax?

The default string to work on is $_ if you have a s/// cmd by itself.  so:
is like:
$_ = s/\Q$_\E/Address_v2/;
which is easier as:
$_ = "Address_v2";

Again, w/o testing, you may lose your trailing \n in the s/// form.

Why do programmers confuse Halloween and Christmas?
Because OCT 31 = DEC 25.
