in reply to How scoping works in If statements?

if you want to assign conditionally only using one line try the ternary operator:
my $x = (1) ? 5 : undef;

    That still doesn't address the underlying scoping issue, though.
    use strict; use warnings; my $x = (0) ? 5 : undef; my $x = 42; __END__ "my" variable $x masks earlier declaration in same scope

    It's all fine and dandy until someone has to look at the code.
