My only concern is that if this code gets run on an older perl, the failure would be more obvious if it failed on use feature 'chained'; instead of the code itself.

$>perl5.30 -E' my ($a, $b, $c) = (1,2,3); say "ok" if($a < $b < $c)'
syntax error at -e line 1, near "$b <"
Execution of -e aborted due to compilation errors.
