    If by "shorter," you mean 14 characters longer, then absolutely.

    defined $id and $$self{_id} = $id; or with newer perls $$self{_id} //= $id;
      $$self{_id} //= $id; checks the definedness of $$self{_id}, not of $id (as the other suggested snippets do), so it does something completely different (never reset the attribute, instead of prevent assignment of an undefined id).
