in thread What operator should perl5porters use for safe dereferencing?

My thoughts, exactly. If such a beast were to arise, I would prefer that it be somewhat consistent (visually) with defined-or (even though we are trying to represent defined-and). I might be persuaded that something based on && would be suitable.

IMO, many of the poll options resembled bitwise operations, matching, and the ternary operator too strongly.

[Corion]: ... make already does, except for files instead of programs. But maybe with some /proc hackery, that could be eliminated and one could use plain make :-D
[choroba]: systemd just makes is asynchronous
[choroba]: so, make -j
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah - but when writing Perl to save time (instead of having fun), it helps to look whether you're actually saving time ;) Why spend 5 minutes doing manually what you can spend three years automating? ;)
[Corion]: choroba: Oh, yeah :-D
