Three random notes:
- One reason to use == rather than eq is so that you can get warnings if something non-numerical is used where you expect a number.
- One reason to use eq rather than == is that string conversions lose a few decimal places, so you put off hitting spurious inequalities due to floating-point rounding errors.
- Consider writing 2 == $val rather than $val == 2. It looks odd, but that way the common typo of = rather than == will give you an immediate compilation error rather than a nasty bug.
