Course of Raku / Essentials / Conditional checks

if and unless as statement modifiers

Raku offers a very handy solution when you want to execute a simple statement conditionally. In this case, there’s no need to create a separate block of code. Just put if or unless immediately after the statement. In Raku, such constructs are called statement modifiers.

say 'Good afternoon' if $hours > 12;

say 'All systems work' unless $broken;
