in thread Short form (ternary) if else

Wrong, it can indeed execute code:

sub foo1 { print "Hello, World!\n"; } sub foo2 { print "Goodbye, World!\n"; } 1 ? foo1() : foo2(); 0 ? foo1() : foo2();
This prints:
Hello, World! Goodbye, World!
I think what you're confused about is still scope; like the if/else block in the original post, if you declare my $vxdg inside the ternary operator, it will fall out of scope before you try to access it again.
