From mar@cf.nettuno.it

This is a bug report for perl from mar@​cf.nettuno.it,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.


This is not a bug, but an usefull and easy enhancement -i think​:
the syntax and use of
  evalexpr?evaltruecase​:evalfalsecase
can be enhanced with the capability of absence of evaltruecase expression

this absence can return by default the value of evalexpr

having
  evalexpr?​:evalfalsecase
similar but more efficient that (typical...)
  evalexpr?evalexpr​:evalfalsecase

actually perl returns syntax error near "?​:"

for efficency and code more light

All the best,
Marco Munari <mar@​chiara.dei.unipd.it>

The || operator already does exactly what you are asking for.

perhaps you want the equivalent (and currently legal)​:

  $val = evalexpr || evalfalsecase;

Subtle difference​: C<a ? a : b> gives boolean context to the first a.
The second a and the b get whatever context comes from the outside.
C<a || b> gives scalar context to the a, while b gets its context from
the outside.
