in reply to check undef

If you have to do these checks again and again, you can think of creating a dedicated sub routine for that.

sub all_defined { for my $i ( @_ ) { #return 0 if !defined $i; return if !defined $i; } return 1; } if ( all_defined( $WCkey, $SCkey, $Pkey, $Wkey, $Ukey ) ) { print "bla bla"; }

Update: modified code; thanks davorg

    return 0 has a potentially dangerous effect. It will evaluate as true if your subroutine is called in list context. Just a bare return is usually a better idea.

      Not better, different. Now it breaks under different circumstances.
