There's a module. But it doesn't work the way he thinks it does.

    There's a module. But it doesn't work the way he thinks it does.
    And which he shouldn't be using. The Switch module mistakenly escaped into Perl 5.8. Do not use it. The Switch module was deprecated in Perl 5.10 and removed in Perl 5.14.

    Notice that in Categorized Damian Modules, the Switch module is categorized by its author as "Damian modules you shouldn't use in production because their purpose is to explore and prototype future core language features".

    You can switch to the built-in given/when if using Perl 5.10+. If stuck with Perl 5.8, you could use an if/elsif block instead.
