in reply to Re^3: perldelta unclear on 'given's fate
in thread perldelta unclear on 'given's fate

Going from that discussion it looks like a good part of 'given's usefulness is centred on smartmatch... Which I don't use in any other way, therefore perhaps 'given' is not all that important after all.

At the end of the day I suppose I would just like a perl 'switch/case/default' because I am very used to that way of thinking and controlling execution.
