in reply to or with a block

I tend to do it like this:

unless(opendir(CLEANPATH,"$path")) { warn "$path: $!\n"; next; }
It reads kinda nicely. "unless we can open the directory, yell"

Some people might dislike that technique since the evalaution of the conditional has a side effect (that the directory is opened)...but I think it'd like it better than the right hand side of an inlined 'or' having one... ;)
