       Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitIfIfSameLine - don't put if after if on same


       This policy is part of the "Perl::Critic::Pulp" add-on.  It asks you to not to write an
       "if" statement on the same line as a preceding "if".

           if ($x) {
           } if ($y) {       # bad

           if ($x) {
           } elsif ($y) {    # was "elsif" intended ?

       The idea is that an "if" in the layout of an "elsif" may be either a mistake or will be
       confusing to a human reader.  On that basis this policy is under the "bugs" theme and
       medium severity (see "POLICY THEMES" in Perl::Critic).

       An "unless...if" is treated the same.  Perl allows "unless ... elsif" and so the same
       potential confusion with an "elsif" layout arises.

           unless ($x) {
           } if ($y) {       # bad

           unless ($x) {
           } elsif ($y) {    # maybe meant to be "elsif" like this ?

       Whether "unless ... elsif" is a good idea at all is another matter.  Sometimes it suits a
       combination of conditions.

   Statement Modifiers
       This policy only applies to a statement followed by a statement.  An "if" as a statement
       modifier is not affected.  It's usual to put that on the same line as the statement it

           do {
           } if ($x);        # ok, statement modifier

   All One Line
       Two "if" statements written on the same line will trigger the policy.

           if(1){one;}   if(2){two;}      # bad

       Perhaps there could be an exception or option when both statements are entirely on the one
       line, or some such, for code which is trying to be compact.

       As always if you don't care about this then you can disable "ProhibitIfIfSameLine" from
       your .perlcriticrc (see "CONFIGURATION" in Perl::Critic),
