Template condition
I have defined a global, let's call it myglobal, which takes two arguments, and either returns the value 1 or 0.

I would like to use it as follows:
<%if myglobal($arg1,$arg2)%>
do something useful
do something even more useful
However, this doesn't seem to work, it always does the "else" thing even if myglobal returns 1. I can get it working if I do
<%set a=myglobal($arg1,$arg2)%>
<%if a%>

Am I missing something, or is this indeed how I have to do it?

My opinion is, that it should work as you described, should execute the "else" part, only if your sub returns false value, e.g. 0.

But if using the "set" is possible to get is work, what is the problem?
However would be fine, to get opinion of Alex, if this is a bug or not.
If this is a bug, then it should be corrected, of course.

Im not sure its clever enough....its clever but not that clever. I don't think Jason was trying to turn the template parser into Perl7 :)
