in thread and this or that

Thank you for the reply jeroenes.
(BTW, the first block in my question has a mistake, saying "$_" where it should say "$next".)
You said
I wouldn't use and with substitution, though. Just:

s/test/somestuff/; print;
does the job cleaner: only one print.

You're right about that. Would the following be a better illustration of the advantage I perceive?

s/^(\d+)/("0"x(8-length).$1)/xe and print or s/^(\w)/("\x20"x(8-length).$1)/xe and print for @ARGV;
Suppose that @ARGV is a combination of digits and words, all digits get zero-padding and all words are padded by space. Anything that fails both matches should be discarded.

Very well then, jeroenes - I will follow the tradition
And thanks again for the replies :-) mkmcconn

    Even than:
    for (@ARGV){ print if s/first/somet/ or s/second/somet/; }
    Would use only one print ;-).
