This might be closer to what you want:
$v = 'AAabcDDabc';
$v =~ s/abc/`echo $& | rev`/eg;

Replace '=' with '=~'
Replace 'm' with 's'
Use the /e operator

  Subject: [tpm] Replace a string with the result of shell command


      Here is the simplified example of what I want to do:

    DB<1> $v = 'AAabcDDabc'
    DB<2> $v = m/abc/`echo $& | rev`/g
  Backticks found where operator expected . . . 

  Please don't take it literally, and argue that shell invoking is not necessary -- I want to replace a certain string with the result of shell command, and pass the matched string to the shell command as well.

  Please help.
