in reply to Will 'when()' be removed or deprecated in upcoming version of Perl?

The two replies by haukex, and kcott, are very good, and pretty well cover it.

I would only add that; if you find you're really hooked on when, and it get's nuked. You could always make it a sub, or export it from an earlier Perl release, and turn it into a CPAN module. :-)
