My question is quite simple suppose i have multiple commands to do, ie

print "success";
$counter++;

can i do these on a line if statement.

ie
print "success" && $counter if (condition is true);

many thanks

Code below should do that.
Don't understand why you would want to though, it's not very readable. Probably better to use separate statements.

#!/usr/bin/perl

$test=1;
(print "success"),(($test >= 1) ? $counter++ : 0) , (print " counter=$counter");

you may use the DO-WHILE statement... for example:

do
{
print "success\n";
$counter++;
}
while ($counter < 10);

##### this will print 'success' and increment the value of $counter and then stops if the value of $counter is not less than 10 anymore.

i hope this one helps...

rj2,

here's what i used:
#!/usr/bin/perl

print "start\n";
$test=1;
print "first success\n"), (print "second success\n") if $test;
print "end\n";


many thanks
