Interesting ... note the parens, perl parses it correctly

$ perl -MO=Deparse,-p -le " $a= 1 && 2; print $a; " BEGIN { $/ = "\n"; $\ = "\n"; } ($a = 2); print($a); -e syntax OK $ perl -MO=Deparse,-p -e " $a && $b = 3; " Can't modify logical and (&&) in scalar assignment at -e line 1, near +"3;" -e had compilation errors. (($a && $b) = 3);

But there is no code to execute this :) its default Can't modify %s http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git/blob?f=op.c#l2020

2012 /* FALL THROUGH */ 2013 default: 2014 nomod: 2015 if (flags & OP_LVALUE_NO_CROAK) return NULL; 2016 /* grep, foreach, subcalls, refgen */ 2017 if (type == OP_GREPSTART || type == OP_ENTERSUB 2018 || type == OP_REFGEN || type == OP_LEAVESUBLV) 2019 break; 2020 yyerror(Perl_form(aTHX_ "Can't modify %s in %s", 2021 (o->op_type == OP_NULL && (o->op_flags & OPf +_SPECIAL) 2022 ? "do block" 2023 : (o->op_type == OP_ENTERSUB 2024 ? "non-lvalue subroutine call" 2025 : OP_DESC(o))), 2026 type ? PL_op_desc[type] : "local"));
