in reply to Always Follow Up on Warnings

I've been known to rant about uninitialized warnings before... Here is one nice idiom for "cleaning" a series of undefined values.
$_ = '' for grep !defined, ($x,$y,$z);
Try the following code with and w/o this clensing line:
#!/usr/bin/perl -wT use strict; my ($x,$y,$z) = (undef,'hello',undef); # undef "clensing" idiom $_ = '' for grep !defined, ($x,$y,$z); print "x='$x' y='$y' z='$z'\n";

      The problem with $_ ||= '' is that it turns 0's into ''. defined is much less cool, but definitely more effective.
