in reply to Ternary Operator with Subroutine

When you assign to a reference a value (in this case an anonymous sub), dereference that reference to access its value:
hisham@bioslayer:~$ perl - my $subref = sub{print 'a',"\n";}; (my $test)?print 'c' : $subref->(); #dereference with infix arrow oper +ator __END__ a hisham@bioslayer:~$ perl - my $subref = sub{print 'a',"\n"}; (my $test)?print 'c' : &{$subref}; #dereference with &{} __END__ a
check %perldoc perlsub
