Hello. A question of style...

What is your preferred method of line-breaking conditional expressions (assuming they're long enough to warrant line breaking, unlike my examples below)? (I'm ignoring the "where does the curly brace go" issue here :)

Some examples:

# The operator goes at the end if (A && B && C) # The operator goes at the beginning if (A && B && C) # My editor won't do this one for me automatically if ( A && B && C)
I use the first two examples above under different conditions, but I haven't identified what makes me choose one or the other, yet.

Thanks,

Alan

Update: Lately I've been using operator-first notation. I almost always indent all of my perl the way Emacs perl-mode wants it indented, so most of the time I don't spend much time thinking about it.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
