Why is this an issue?
This rule is a strict implementation of a MISRA (Motor Industry Software Reliability Association) rule. MISRA defines best practices for developing
safety-critical software. You can learn more about this rule in the MISRA documents referenced below.
If you are not concerned with MISRA compliance or with safety-critical software, you might consider using rule S121 instead ; it targets
the same kind of issue for general-purpose software.
- MISRA C++2008, 6-4-1 An if ( condition ) construct shall be followed by a compound statement. The else keyword shall be followed by either a
compound statement, or another if statement.
