&doSomething if ($var);
This was the construct that tripped me up the most, along with its brother unless, when being brainwashed coming over to perl.
the typical
if ($foo) { ... ... }
sets the reader up -- he knows something might happen, but if he's unfamiliar with the alternate synax, that fact might pass him by. The end result is that I read code a little more thoroughly, and I've gotten used to it, so I guess it's not a total loss.
