in reply to What does the ternary statement actually do?

The ternary just allows an expression to have one of two values based on a test. That is:
$a = 1 ? 'abc' : 'def'; # sets $a to 'abc' $a = 0 ? 'abc' : 'def'; # sets $a to 'def'

[LanX]: I pronounce it 'juːmən'
[Your Mother]: Hey, let's not bring antisemitism into the conversation.
[LanX]: for centuries posh English speakers tried to approach French, that's where all the trouble starts
[Eily]: Just another Perl coeurs
[Eily]: (perl with hearts, 'Acker with a French accent is pronunced like coeurs)
[LanX]: IMHO 'ju' for 'u' happens in English where they can't pronounce the French u (or German )
[LanX]: and I'm sure I read that *hotel* used to be pronounced 'otel by the English upperclass
[Your Mother]: American English vowels are pretty lazy/mumbly in general.
[LanX]: talking about antisemitism, youtube automatic subtitles is entertaining shocking sometimes ... like when offering "Fruit Jews" as a drink
[Your Mother]: ...Come on you King of the Juice...
