Perl::Critic::Policy::ControlSPerl::Critic::Policy::ControlStructures::ProhibitUnreachableCode(3)

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:

       o   Flow-altering statement has a conditional attached to it

       o   Statement is on the right side of an operator "&&", "||", "//", "and", "or", or "err".

       o   Code is prefixed with a label (can potentially be reached via "goto")

       o   Code is a subroutine

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.
