    length() isn't needed here since $foo is the result of $_->to_literal which returns either a string an empty string.

      length() isn't needed here

      sure it is, it clarifies intent

        Then this is even clearer. :)

        if (length $artist > 0){ print "$artist | "; } else { print "0 | "; }
