in reply to Hash element exists/delete

Adding to what ree already pointed out: If you would have used use warnings; in your code, Perl would have told you about the problem.

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong:

    $ perl -e 'use strict; use warnings; my $one = 1; my $two = 2; if( $on +e = $two ) { print "True\n"; } else { print "False\n"; } ' True $

    I get no warnings!

      Because it's valid code, $two could be a boolean to be tested and as a side-effect $one is set.


      perl -e 'use strict; use warnings; my $one = 1; if( $one = 2 ) { prin +t "True\n"; } else { print "False\n"; } ' Found = in conditional, should be == at -e line 1. True


      perl -we '$a=1; print (($a = 2) ? "True" : "False");' Found = in conditional, should be == at -e line 1.

      cause now it makes less sense.


      Cheers Rolf


      And personally I would be glad if this would cause a warning, too!

      Only warns in more complex conditionals...

      perl -we'if ($z=1 or $z=2) { 1 }'

      ... I'm not sure of the exact set of circumstances that triggers it.

      package Cow { use Moo; has name => (is => 'lazy', default => sub { 'Mooington' }) } say Cow->new->name
