NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitConditionalDeclarations - Do not write " my $foo
       = $bar if $baz; ".

AFFILIATION

       This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.

DESCRIPTION

       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.
       It's 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

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
