in thread Sequential defined-or operators

Just be careful with precedence. Absent prototypes overriding the default,

my $value = $hash{$arg} // func $arg // 'default';
means
my $value = $hash{$arg} // func($arg // 'default');

Putting parens around the low precedence bit solves the problem.

my $value = $hash{$arg} // (func $arg) // 'default';

Of course, with functions, you can also do

my $value = $hash{$arg} // func($arg) // 'default';

    Yes, I'm aware about this issue. I wrote related matter sometime ago. So I believe it will be perfectly fine to write:
    my $value = $hash{$key} // func $arg // 'default';
    knowing that func is a unary operator.
