    I love it! Thank you.

    How about extending _ to mean the article passed to the previous test to apply to other tests?

    if ( exists $foo->{member} and defined $foo->{member}) {}

    becomes

    if ( exists $foo->{member} and defined _ ) {}

    It's now just a little shorter ...
    • That would break existing programs. Besides, it's not equivalent to the file tests, since you're not caching the info needed for future tests when you do the first one.
