If-then in a guard statement

If we need a condition in a guard statement then we can (presumably) use a closure, but that is imo a bit awkward. But there is an alternative: the '?' operator.

Instead of using a  closure with "if {} else {}" construct simply use the () ? () : () operator like this:

guard (type == .OBJECT) ? ( != nil) : true else { return false }

The conditional for != nil is  only executed if the  type == .OBJECT evaluates to 'true'.


Happy coding...
