RFC: "assignary" operator ?= :by richard.sharpe (Sexton)
|on Dec 07, 2019 at 16:01 UTC||Need Help??|
I would like having new type of assignment operator in perl, the combination of assignment and ternary operator (therefore calling it "assignary"):?= :
Not in context of regular expressions, not related with (?=) in any way, but in regular assignment. I haven't found something like that in perlop.
Suggested meaning:$var ?= "something" : "something else";
would be equivalent to:$var = $var ? "something" : "something else";
Advantage of the first: more compact, as not writing $var two times.
What do you think about possible existence of such hybrid of ternary and assignment operators?
