... &&= too techy ...

A bit too techy and, for these old eyes, just plain difficult to see! I think I'd incline toward something like (all untested)

sub fred { my ($t, $u, $v, $w, $x, $y) = @_; somelogger(5, "fred", "start of fred"); my $ok = 1; $ok = method1($t) if $ok; $ok = method2($u) if $ok; my $pid = open my $ph, "/somewhere/program $v |"; my $output = ''; $ok = method3(<$ph>, \$output) if $ok; close $ph; waitpid $ph,0; if ($ok) { somelogger(5, "fred", "fred completed successfully"); } else { somelogger(5, "fred", "error during fred"); } return $ok; }
or maybe even (assuming the methods can be made to return error strings or the empty string for no error)
sub fred { my ($t, $u, $v, $w, $x, $y) = @_; somelogger(5, "fred", "start of fred"); my $err; $err = method1($t) unless $err; $err = method2($u) unless $err; my $pid = open my $ph, "/somewhere/program $v |"; my $output = ''; $err = method3(<$ph>, \$output) unless $err; close $ph; waitpid $ph,0; if ($err) { somelogger(5, "fred", "error '$err' during fred"); } else { somelogger(5, "fred", "fred completed successfully"); } return $err; }
