i'm using 5.005_03, and this is what happens when i try to use || in a naughty way:
#!/usr/bin/perl $FOO="/etc/passwd"; open FOO || die "Argh: $!\n";

results in:
nooky:~$ ./ Precedence problem: open FOO should be open(FOO) at ./ line 3.
Running with -w like a good boy produces even more useful output:
nooky:~$ ./ Precedence problem: open FOO should be open(FOO) at ./ line 3. Probable precedence problem on logical or at ./ line 3.

I have not played with 5.6 yet, but I'd be a little upset if this feature was removed....

    Ah, that only works for open. Thanks for clearing that up.
