Re^2: interpretation of "neither...nor"

in reply to Re: interpretation of "neither...nor"

I'd use or and not instead of || && ! because the long names:

  • are better readable, and especially the ! is often "hidden behind other code".
  • have the lowest precedence which might avoid errors if the expressions get more complicated, especially if there are .. ... ?: = += -+ and so on , => within them. Especially stuff like open FH, $filename || die "Error: $!"; is fatal.

So I'd write it the following way, although it is a little bit longer:

print "no editor found\n" unless defined $ENV{EDITOR} or defined $ENV{VISUAL};

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."

[erix]: that's an old plan, I think. Isn't there already a danewal (or some such name)?
[marto]: Build with -Wall
[erix]: Danewerk
[LanX]: I seem to remember that the danewall was build by the Frankish empire against the Danes
[erix]: 500 AD thru viking age
[erix]: that would make sense but wikipedia thinks otherwise
[LanX]: oh me was wrong ...
[erix]: but it always works both ways of course
[LanX]: Funny some weeks ago, I met people from the Cimbrian peninsula who didn't know it's called the Cimbrian peninsula ...
