Additional to what Tanktalus said.

The logical operator pairs (&& and), and (|| or) only differ by their precedence. The spelled-out ones have extremely low precedence, while the symbolic ones are fairly high.

These operators are "lazy evaluated". The or op will not evaluate its right-hand term if the left evaluated true. The and op will not evaluate its right-hand term if the left evaluated false. That makes the following possible.

The logical operators can be used as concise forms of program flow control. That is often seen in error handling. An operation which returns true on success will skip an operation connected by or, so we write,

open my $fh, '<', $filename or die $!;
to handle failure to open a file, for example.

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.
