Did you test it? It works for me.

    No, but how can one assign to a hash element that does not exist? Well, %ENV is magical, so let's test it out.

    $ perl -wE' my $condition = 0; say exists($ENV{BLAH}) || 0; local $ENV{BLAH} = $condition ? 42 : $ENV{BLAH}; say exists($ENV{BLAH}) || 0; ' 0 1

    So I was right

    This is perl 5, version 12, subversion 2 (v5.12.2) built for i686-linu +x

      My tests appeared to work for strange reasons. Sorry about that. But you can fix the original without copying the whole environment:

      local $ENV{BLAH}; if( @ARGV ) { $ENV{BLAH}= 42; } else { delete $ENV{BLAH}; }
