You mean pass a shell variable to perl?  In place of ABcd1234?

Well you can use obvious stuttering quotes:

/usr/sbin/usermod -p $(perl -e"print crypt('"$password"','xxxxxxxx')") -F $Zuser

 

Or you look up an exported variable in the environment.

Or pass it as an argument after the -e string.

Of which?  I showed you how to use a shell variable directly.
