in reply to Is this reliable?

      But what I wonder (and have my doubts about) is, will this appoach also work on a arbitrary Perl/OS implementation? My doubt is that

As far as I know the results of a comparative will always evaluate as a non-zero if true. That said I'd be more comfortable doing things this way:

my $r = (temp> 100? 1000: 1250);
That should eliminate any doubt of the matter.

    Or even
        $r += ($temp > 100 ? 250 : 0);
        $temp > 100 and $r += 250;
