in reply to Illogical logic statement

When I execute:

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; my $str = 'false'; if ($str == 'true') { print "$str=true\n"; } else { print "$str=false\n"; }

I get:

Argument "true" isn't numeric in numeric eq (==) at noname.pl line 7. false=true Argument "false" isn't numeric in numeric eq (==) at noname.pl line 7.

which is a pretty good heads up! Always use strictures (use strict; use warnings; - see The strictures, according to Seuss).

True laziness is hard work
