Manual Reference Pages - PERL::CRITIC::POLICY::VARIABLES::PROHIBITCONDITIONALDECLARATIONS (3)
Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitConditionalDeclarations - Do not write " my $foo = $bar if $baz; ".
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic
Declaring a variable with a postfix conditional is really confusing.
If the conditional is false, its not clear if the variable will be
false, undefined, undeclared, or what. Its much more straightforward
to make variable declarations separately.
my $foo = $baz if $bar; #not ok
my $foo = $baz unless $bar; #not ok
our $foo = $baz for @list; #not ok
local $foo = $baz foreach @list; #not ok
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
