NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Freenode::ProhibitConditionalDeclarations - Don't declare variables
       conditionally

DESCRIPTION

       It is possible to add a postfix condition to a variable declaration, like "my $foo = $bar
       if $baz". However, it is unclear (and undefined) if the variable will be declared when the
       condition is not met. Instead, declare the variable and then assign to it conditionally,
       or use the ternary operator to assign a value conditionally.

         my $foo = $bar if $baz;           # not ok
         my ($foo, $bar) = @_ unless $baz; # not ok
         our $bar = $_ for 0..10;          # not ok
         my $foo; $foo = $bar if $baz;     # ok
         my $foo = $baz ? $bar : undef;    # ok

       This policy is a subclass of the core policy
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitConditionalDeclarations, and performs the same
       function but in the "freenode" theme.

AFFILIATION

       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Freenode.
