[BiO BB] A question about replacing a substring using Bioperl

Dear all,

I have a txt file which stores 20 short DNA sequences and the length of each 
is 8, let's 
call it A. Meanwhile, I have another txt file which owns 100 long DNA 
sequences and the length of each is
200, let's call it B. 

Then, I want to replace a substring of each sequence in B with each one in 
The replacement starting site could be specified as you want(such as
starting at position 1 for the first sequence in B, 10th for the 2nd 
sequence in
B, 20th for the 3rd, until 190th for the 20th in B ) or picked
by the program randomly. I am pretty sure 
substr(string,index,length,replacement string) can finish a part
of this work. 

But I have limited experience of using Perl to manipulate two files. Can 
give me some suggestions?

Thank you very much and look forward to your reply!

Best Regards,
