- [Voiceover] Logical operators are used to perform…Boolean operations on logical values.…Here's a working copy of relational.pl…from chapter eight of the exercise files.…Perl has two sets of logical operators…for two different purposes.…Low precedence logical operators are used…to bind logical expressions according to Boolean rules.…For example, we have this conditional expression here…that we used earlier in this chapter,…and if I run this you see it says false,…because a is not actually equal to b,…a is a seven, and b is 42.…
Now if I come down here…and I say if a equals b,…or rather, if a equals c,…and $b…is equal to $d,…we notice that a is equal to c,…and b is equal to d, so we should get true.…And I'll run that, and you see that the result is true.…So this and, right there, is a logical operator.…It's very low priority,…and so the expressions on either side of it…are always going to be evaluated first.…
And this makes it very useful…for this sort of usage.…Now, just so that we can look at the logical operators,…
Watch to learn the details of the Perl syntax, from variables, conditionals, loops, and data structures to regular expressions, functions, and references. A quick-start guide is included for experienced developers who want to get up and running with Perl 5 fast, and the entire course is recommended for both new and experienced programmers alike. Later chapters cover file handling and reusing code with Perl modules, plus Perl best coding practices.
