in thread perltidy for ternary operator?

That's a suggestion ("you can") for the case you expect new entries to come.

But that's not a problem with perltidy, cause cascades (as demonstrated) would be fixed automatically.

And I doubt that breaking simple ternaries would be appreciated by the majority.

It might interest you that tidy's output of a simple ternaries depends on existing linebreaks: (see -bot option)

lanx@lanx-1005HA:~$ cat /tmp/ my $var1 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none ; #own linebreak my $var2 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none ; lanx@lanx-1005HA:~$ perltidy -pbp /tmp/ my $var1 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none; #own linebreak my $var2 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none;

Since the documentation mentions ternaries only once for -bot I doubt your goal can be achieved! (i.e. without patching the code)

) i.a.W if you expect the ternary to be cascaded in the future then enter a linebreak manually.

    I didn't ask how to achieve what the majority want, I asked how to achieve what I want.

    As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.

      Could one not just create a second ternary operation that perl would optimize out, such as the following?

      According to B:Deparse, the second ternary operator appears to be optimized out:

      However, the code, when handled by Perl::Tidy, appears to be formatted in the manner the OP is requesting:

      I know that may not be what the OP was hoping for, but perhaps it might be an option to look at.

      Hope that helps.

      And you got an answer: patch the code.

      There is no option for your private needs
