in thread truth in while condition

Thanks for your reply! Sounds reasonable but what do you think about comment by LanX? It seems they are technically different.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Both are right, but it's a bit tricky to construct a while-condition doing a readline and exiting at false.

    I'd rather use an explicit last with condition inside the body.

    use strict; use warnings; use feature 'say'; while ( $_= <DATA>, chomp, $_) { say; } __DATA__ 3 1 0 2
    -->
    3 1

    (NB: Iterators don't necessarily loop over lines where they need to chomp, <update see here>)
