At that point, i would definetaly try a dispatch table with sub references

I might do something like this:

my $func = ($foo > 7) ? $bar && \&bar_mysub || $baz && \&baz_mysub : $bar && \&bar_other_mysub || $baz && \&baz_other_mysub; $func->($foo) if $func;
Update: I admit I might reformat it slightly, but except for the '?:' operator, its not any different than the last example in perlsyn under "Basic BLOCKs and Switch Statements". (We do want to encourage newbies to read the FAQs, right? :-)

Update: For the curious, here's what perltidy does with a longer version of the above (the above code puts makes perltidy put more on one line, so I added a bit more so it would get more broken up):

my $func = ( $foo > 7 ) ? $bar && \&bar_mysub || $baz && \&baz_mysub || $bam && \&bam_mysub || $bak && \&bak_mysub : $bar && \&bar_other_mysub || $baz && \&baz_other_mysub || $bam && \&bam_other_mysub || $bak && \&bak_other_mysub; $func->($foo) if $func;
As always, decide for yourself if this is better or worse, more or less readable, or more or less readable to someone else, than whatever else you might come up with (I actually like jeffa's version below better) :-)
