It depends a lot on where you want to go with this. One technique would be to use a hash to generate a dispatch table. Consider:

```use strict;
use warnings;

my %dispatch = (
0b000001 => \&noneTrue,
0b111110 => \&allTrue,
0b001101 => \&firstLine,
);

my \$name = '';
my \$vorname = 'full';
my \$plz = 1;
my \$tel = 0;
my \$tel49 = undef;

while (<DATA>) {
chomp;

my (\$name, \$vorname, \$plz, \$tel, \$tel49) = split ',';

my \$vector = (!\$name) || 2;
\$vector |= (!\$vorname) || 4;
\$vector |= (!\$plz) || 8;
\$vector |= (!\$tel) || 16;
\$vector |= (!\$tel49) || 32;

\$dispatch{\$vector}->(\$.) if exists \$dispatch{\$vector};
}

sub noneTrue {
print "None true in input line \$_[0]\n";
}

sub allTrue {
print "All true in input line \$_[0]\n";
}

sub firstLine {
print "Matched first line pattern at input line \$_[0]\n";
}

__DATA__
,full,1,0,
first,second,3,4,
1,2,3,4,5
,,3,4,

last,,,,

Prints:

```Matched first line pattern at input line 1
All true in input line 3
None true in input line 5
