in reply to and vs &&

To eliminate doubts about the right hand condition evaluating to an anonymous list with one entry of the value 0, which evaluates to true I would like to append the following;

$ perl -e 'my $a=(1 == 1) and 0;print "$a\n";' 1

    Where do you see a list in that code?

      I never saw a list, but as parentheses are also used to enforce list context someone might percieve (0) to be 0 in list context. I hope that explains my cryptic clarification :)
