well, not yet:


>>> true true >>> "stringification: " + (1==1) "stringification: true"

use v5.10.0; use boolean; say true; say "stringification:" . (1==1);


/usr/bin/perl -w /tmp/ 1 stringification:1

but using dualvars could help.


kind of

use Scalar::Util qw/dualvar/; my $false = dualvar 0, "false"; my $true = dualvar 1, "true"; say $true; say "stringification:" . $true; say "numification: " . (0+$true); say $false; say "stringification: " . $false; say "numification: " . (0+$false);

Cheers Rolf
