in reply to if variants

I've taken the comments pointing out methods of getting around the apparent limits on multiple actions in a one-line if statement to heart and inserted a brief mention into the text of if variants. Rather than actually attempt to comprehensively list and explain them all, adding cruft to what may already be a too-bloated treatment of if statement variants, I have simply made brief mention of the fact and left it at that.

I think it would be helpful and useful, and generally a good idea, if someone were to create a new node on the topic of such exceptions to that limitation of one-line conditionals. If the author of such a thing messages me after creating that node, I'll have a look at it and consider linking to it from the text of this node (assuming it's sufficiently relevant and clearly written).

Or, I might write it myself if nobody else does, eventually. I'm not a Perl guru, however, and that might be some time in coming.

    Im not sure having a heap of little snippets of info is really useful here. Probably better to integrate such suggestions into your text, especially if it was meant as a Tutorial. (Was it, if so please indicate somewhere, so we can link it on the Tutorials page).

    It's ok to post a work in progress, have people comment, suggest additions, and then update. That way, the info is all in one page, and not scattered around in several.


      I'm already in the business of adding appendices to this node, apparently, so I'll add another on the subject of adding more actions to a single-line if statement. Thanks for the advice.

      If if variants is thought to be worth linking amongst the site's tutorials, I'd be happy to see it there.
