Secret Perl Operators: the boolean list squash operator, x!!
This is cool!
Sadly, in most cases where I am doing conditionals, I am using optional hash keys with exists. Unfortunately, these would autovivify under x!!, which is an undesirable side effect. Ifs or ternaries work, but I can't see a way of stopping the autovivification with the "boolean list squash" operator. Can anybody suggest how to solve my variant?
