To be fair ...

Teach a man how to find answers and you teach him for life.
Answer his questions for him and you get Perlmonks XP.

    You got me, the only reason I'm on here is to accumulate XP so I can get more spells and a larger HP pool next level.

    Seriously though, I think the OP did a decent job trying to figure things out before posting. S/he read the obvious doc, did some troubleshooting, and had a nearly correct understanding of the ||= operator, but was unsure and needed confirmation and a little guidance. I think the OP's main issue is that the reader of perlop needs to extrapolate some of the function of ||= from the examples for += and the OP may have missed that. Regarding // vs ||, even some of the people answering had some confusion.

    OK, that's my two cents. Now I'm off to Reddit, where the votes actually matter!
