where does $i ne 'one' is happening in my code ?

It isn’t! To see this, print out the values of $hash->{name} and $i:

#! perl use strict; use warnings; my $hash = {}; my $i = 'one'; print "\nOriginal code:\n\n"; ($i eq 'one') ? $hash->{'name'} = "hello"."world" : 'nothing'; printf "name: %s, i: %s\n", $hash->{name}, $i; print "\nBrowserUk's fix:\n\n"; $hash->{name} = ($i eq 'one') ? "hello" . "world" : 'nothing'; printf "name: %s, i: %s\n", $hash->{name}, $i;

Output:

22:46 >perl 801_SoPW.pl Useless use of a constant ("nothing") in void context at 801_SoPW.pl l +ine 21. Original code: name: helloworld, i: one BrowserUk's fix: name: helloworld, i: one 22:46 >

As you can see, the warning is printed before the script runs, because it’s a compile-time warning, as BrowserUk says. But in both cases, the result of the assignment is that $hash->{name} contains helloworld, showing that $i eq 'one' is true. What makes you think that $i becomes not equal to 'one'?

For the ternary operator, see perlop#Conditional-Operator.

Hope that helps,
