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"}

[LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but heís not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
[Your Mother]: Missiles would be an idiotís play. Putin is many things but he is not an idiot.
[erix]: I like the idea of the trumps troup of imbeciles growing slightly nervous now their incompetence will be tested
[erix]: you seem forget there is another idiot coming :)
