Hi DVB,
It seems like doesn't work. I want to meet both conditions in order to run the next statement. Can I use && here?

Thanks,

I suggest, you missed $ before "allow_yn"
Another error is using "=" instead of "==".

Final code is

if (($number == 1) and ($allow_yn eq "Y")) {
&stuff();
}
else {
die "Stuff not allowed";
}

you can use "and" as well as "&&"

Sorry, $number == 1 should read as $number > 1, of course

use strict;

my $number = 4324;
my $allow_yn = 'y';

if(($number > 1) && (uc($allow_yn) eq 'Y')){
     do my stuff here
}


This is how it would look.  Always "use strict;".  Besure to put a $ infront of your variables (so they don't become constants) and use my to declare you variables in the scope of the function and/or script. The uc function will make sure it is uppercase.
