This problem is borrowed from C, which was one of the templates for designing Perl
"Conditional operator" seems to be the original term for the "ternary operator"
I have an almost original copy of Kernighan/Ritchie in my bookshelf - though in German - and it's introduced as "Conditional Validation" ("Bedingte Bewertung")
I agree with you that the name is unfortunate and I've never heard using it in Perl's context. "Ternary Operator" is the "normal" term.
changing the title to "Ternary Operator" and appending an example exemplifying the analogy to if-then-else
* Ternary Operator
I'd also add similar code examples to and , && , or and ||
