in reply to Something is defined when it shouldn't be?

' ' is true in Perl. Only 0, '0', '', and undef are false (see What is true and false in Perl?). The word "defined" has a different meaning, too (see defined).

If you are only interested in values that contain a digit, you can use a regular expression: /[0-9]/.
