  • That's a great feature, and I definitely think it should've made the list, as it's my number two feature. It's close to //, but I just have too much perl 5 code which says defined $foo ? $foo : $bar.

    I think I'd probably rate the proper reporting of uninitialized variables higher, except I've done without for so long, I rarely encounter that problem anymore. But the defined check warts have remained year after year - it isn't problem code to be fixed, except that it bothers my code sense and I'm just tired of typing it.
