I looked into PBP and that's not what it says!
It recommends to
Format cascaded ternary operators in columns
and that's exactly what the -pbp switch does:
lanx@lanx-1005HA:~$ cat /tmp/tst.pl
my $var1 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none ;
my $var2 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $condition2 ? $val_for_
+true2 : $val_for_none ;
lanx@lanx-1005HA:~$ perltidy -pbp /tmp/tst.pl
my $var1 = $condition ? $val_for_true : $val_for_none;
= $condition ? $val_for_true
: $condition2 ? $val_for_true2
I'd appreciate if you'd fix the typo in the title, provide links to documentation of the modules (like perltidy) and chapters (like "Ternaries") you are questioning.
