in reply to true/false condition - what am I doing wrong?

You can use a block construct to get this to work:
my $type = "add"; my $redo; $type eq "add" ? {$redo = "wiki_add2"} : {$redo = "wiki_edit2"}; print "With type: $type, we could redo: $redo \n";

    Did you mean 'do' block? Because using your example I get the following warnings:
    Useless use of anonymous hash ({}) in void context at test.pl line 5. Useless use of anonymous hash ({}) in void context at test.pl line 5. Odd number of elements in anonymous hash at test.pl line 5.
