Thats all fine and good until your default value is ask_user(). Then this fails due to eager evaluation. // fixes this fortunately.

    It took me a second to understand that you are referring to the short-circuiting nature of //. If you needed the short-circuiting behaviour pre-5.10, here's one solution:
    sub first(&@) { my $cb = shift(@_); for (@_) { my $i = ref eq 'CODE' ? $_->() : $$_; my $rv; $rv = $cb->() for $i; return $i if $rv; } return; } my $theme = first { defined } \$global_config->{modes}{$current_mode}{theme}, \$theme_config->{current_theme}, \&ask_user, \'none';
