in reply to comparison of character

probably because you used || instead of or its  (...) || (...) ... or  ... or ... or ...

You're typing "||" when you should be using "or"

Common Perl Pitfalls / perltrap , "or die" versus "|| die", and two more To || or not to or and why., Perl Idioms Explained - && and || "Short Circuit" operators, || die or or die :)

    As already pointed out by others, it should really be a logical and, not a logical or.

    No. According to perlop, eq has a higher precedence than || and or, so, in this case, either one will do the same thing.

    I tend to use || for logical tests (X || Y) and or for flow control (STMT or die...).

    Update: clarified word choice a bit.
