NAME

Scalar::Compare - Dynamically use comparison operators

SYNOPSIS

  my $scalar1  = 'waffle';
  my $scalar2  = 'pirate';
  my $operator = 'ne';
  if (scalar_compare($scalar1, $operator, $scalar2)) {
      warn "Proceed normally.";
  }

DESCRIPTION

Simple syntax sugar around Perl's comparison operators that allows you to arbitrarily compare scalars using Perl's comparison operators.

This is useful, for instance, if you want to support arbitrary comparison criteria in your application without lines and lines of if/else blocks.

FUNCTIONS

scalar_compare

Given a scalar, an operator, and another scalar, returns the result of that operator on the provided values.

For instance:

  my $ret = scalar_compare($s1, '==', $s2)

is equivalent to:

  my $ret = $s1 == $s2;
