I would replace that entire routine with the ? thingie, as in

sub fred { return ( ( $_[0] eq 'ooyah' ) ? 1 : 0 ); }
Gee, I didn't realize until I was replying that you used == and I corrected that to eq. Not bad for some guy who wrote C code forever.

And I disagree with the lecturer about leaving the last return to dangle -- what he/she suggested is obsfucation, and you're not doing yourself any favours with that approach.
