in reply to Perl Idioms Explained - && and || "Short Circuit" operators

It's worth mentioning that the low precedence operators and and or work the same way, differing from && and || only in their precedence. The low precedence is useful in common idioms like parenthesis-free my $pid = open my $fh, '-|', '/path/to/cmd' or die $!;
.

[shmem]: in the french alpes, at the end of a gravel road, we had a beer at a hut - and heard an enduro coming up.
[shmem]: not by the road, but from there below where you wouldn't want to walk.
[shmem]: the biker stopped the machine at the table and took off his helmet.
[shmem]: long white hair, long beard the same, then he proceeded to get off the bike
[shmem]: saying "biking itself isn't that much, but getting up and down - hell!"
[shmem]: up and down: on and off the bike, of course
