=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Community::ConditionalImplicitReturn - Don't end a
subroutine with a conditional block


If the last statement in a subroutine is a conditional block such as
C<if ($foo) { ... }>, and the C<else> condition is not handled, the subroutine
will return an unexpected value when the condition fails, and it is most likely
a logic error. Specify a return value after the conditional, or handle the
C<else> condition.

  sub { ... if ($foo) { return 1 } }                   # not ok
  sub { ... if ($foo) { return 1 } return 0 }          # ok
  sub { ... if ($foo) { return 1 } else { return 0 } } # ok

This policy only applies if the subroutine contains a return statement with an
explicit return value, indicating it is not intended to be used in void

=head1 CAVEATS

This policy currently only checks for implicitly returned conditionals in named
subroutines, anonymous subroutines are not checked. Also, return statements
within blocks, other than compound statements like C<if> and C<foreach>, are
not considered when determining if a function is intended to be used in void


This policy is part of L<Perl::Critic::Community>.


This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
