And for something completely different:
# Setup my @ok; ++$ok[$_] for 1, 2, 3; # Sample usage if ($ok[$variable]) { ... }
For more flexibility, try a hash:
# Setup my %fruit; ++$fruit{$_} for qw( apple banana orange ); # Sample usage if ($fruit{$object}) { ... }
These are just one step away from a dispatch table:
# Setup my %dispatch = ( colour => \&area_fill, scale => \&scale_image, warp => \&warp_image, ); # Sample usage if ($handler = $dispatch{$command}) { $handler->(); } else { die("Invalid command $command\n"); }

Update: Keep in mind that 1, 2, 3 can be written as 1..3

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
