in reply to unlink $file OR... OR..

Aye, you can use shift as though it's a variable. I do many a print shift;. It saves on typing and stress of coming up with yet ANOTHER unique variable name.

UPDATE: Adding code for the original question

#!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; my @list; push(@list, "blah.txt"), print qq(Error\n) unless unlink "blah.txt"; print @list;
