or use classic elsif chains

$\="\n"; for (qw/abc foo bar 42 unknown/) { if (/^abc$/) { print 'abc'; } elsif (/^(foo|bar)$/) { print "foo bar"; } elsif ( $_ eq 42 ) { print "42"; } else { print "default: $_"; } } __END__ abc foo bar foo bar 42 default: unknown

if you don't like regex define a sub in to do the test

$\="\n"; sub in { $_ ~~ $_[0] } for (qw/abc foo bar 42 unknown/) { if ( in ['abc']) { print 'abc'; } elsif ( in [qw/foo bar/] ) { print "foo bar"; } elsif ( in [42] ) { print "42"; } else { print "default: $_"; } } __END__ abc foo bar foo bar 42 default: unknown

since the smart match is abstracted away you have maximum freedom to change/fallback implementation of in to regex or even a memoized hash.
