Yes, and Perl introduce and and or as low precedence alternatives.

> The long discussion

yes we had this before

simple example

DB<226> p do { unless (42) { } } 42 DB<227>

Please keep in mind that "ternary operator" is not correct either, since it's a mathematical term classifying a whole family of operators with 3 operands. ? : is just the only ternary one in these languages.
