I use smartmatch for checking whether an integer number is within a certain range, like this:

if ( $number~~[1416..1494] ) { do whatever }

But since i upgraded to a recent Perl version i'm getting a "Smartmatch is deprecated" warning.

Why would such a useful operator be depreciated?

Do I really have to replace '~~' with:

if ( $number>=1416 and $number<=1494 ) { do whatever }

Is there a more elegant solution similar to the smartmatch example?

Also is this depreciation of smartmatch definitive or is there a chance that the Perl devs will change their mind and keep it?
Perl is great because of these brilliant operators, removing them removes a bit of the uniqueness of Perl.

  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
