How about creating a sub to do this?

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; sub SpecialEqual { my $pVal1 = shift; my $pVal2 = shift; return 1 unless (defined $pVal1 or defined $pVal2); return (defined $pVal1 and defined $pVal2 and $pVal1 == $pVal2); } print 'Testing: 1,1 = ',SpecialEqual(1,1),"\n"; print 'Testing: 1,2 = ',SpecialEqual(1,2),"\n"; print 'Testing: 2,1 = ',SpecialEqual(2,1),"\n"; print 'Testing: 2,2 = ',SpecialEqual(2,2),"\n"; print 'Testing: 2,2.5 = ',SpecialEqual(2,2.5),"\n"; print 'Testing: 2.5,2 = ',SpecialEqual(2.5,2),"\n"; print 'Testing: 2.5,2.5 = ',SpecialEqual(2.5,2.5),"\n"; print 'Testing: undef,1 = ',SpecialEqual(undef,1),"\n"; print 'Testing: 1,undef = ',SpecialEqual(1,undef),"\n"; print 'Testing: undef,undef = ',SpecialEqual(undef,undef),"\n";


Maybe I should have read RMGir's reply, yes? *Smiles*

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
