in reply to Short and easy way to write if...elsif syntax

my @array = ("linux", "milinus","Windows","windows","Linux"); foreach (@array){ if (/((linux|Windows))/i){ print "This is $1 VM" . "\n" } else { print "no idea" . "\n" } }

... mmmh, or even:

foreach (@array){/((linux|Windows))/i ? print "This is $1 VM\n": print "no idea\n"}

(in fact you don't need an array for this)

print "THIS is $^O\n";

Therefore you could still eliminate two or three characters:

foreach (@array){/(($^O|Windows))/i ? print "This is $1 VM\n": print "no idea\n"}
