in reply to Conditional array initialisation?

I just started reading the Perl Cookbook, and came across a similar example (chapter1 Strings, p12), only with ||= as //= was not implemented at the time of publication. It says don't extend the use of the ||= assignment operator to arrays and hashes, because the operators put the left operand into scalar context. Instead use the ternary operator, like you did later.

[stevieb]: use metamod::DateTime. Don't fsck around. Seriously. As someone who's done sensitive date/time stuff, don't roll your own. Use what is available and known stable. Do not guess.
[stevieb]: Date::Time even
[stevieb]: ffs I can't make DateTime link properly, so there.
