NAME ^

Perl::Critic::Policy::ControlStructures::ProhibitUnreachableCode - Don't write code after an unconditional die, exit, or next.

AFFILIATION ^

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

DESCRIPTION ^

This policy prohibits code following a statement which unconditionally alters the program flow. This includes calls to exit, die, return, next, last and goto. Due to common usage, croak and confess from Carp are also included.

Code is reachable if any of the following conditions are true:

EXAMPLES ^

  # not ok

  exit;
  print "123\n";

  # ok

  exit if !$xyz;
  print "123\n";

  # not ok

  for ( 1 .. 10 ) {
      next;
      print 1;
  }

  # ok

  for ( 1 .. 10 ) {
      next if $_ == 5;
      print 1;
  }

  # not ok

  sub foo {
      my $bar = shift;
      return;
      print 1;
  }

  # ok

  sub foo {
      my $bar = shift;
      return if $bar->baz();
      print 1;
  }


  # not ok

  die;
  print "123\n";

  # ok

  die;
  LABEL: print "123\n";

  # not ok

  croak;
  do_something();

  # ok

  croak;
  sub do_something {}

CONFIGURATION ^

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
