You can also fold the variable into the same line as the print:

say ( my $mp =()= bad() );

But I wouldn't say that's an improvement. In fact, I would tuck all this away into a routine, to hide details and leave only the high-level purpose.

To learn more about this ( the goatse operator ) and other fun, little-known operators, check out secret perl operators

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.
