I'm relatively new to PHP and I have a question regarding the usage of control structures within functions or methods. I've been playing around with PHP and I've seen examples where control structures like if statements are used directly inside functions or methods.
I'm wondering if it is actually a common practice to use control structures within functions or methods, or if it is considered bad coding style.
I understand that control structures like if statements are usually used to control the flow of execution in a program, so it makes sense that they could be used within functions or methods. But I'm not sure if it's best to keep all control structures separate from functions and methods for better organization and modularity.
What are your thoughts on this? Are there any best practices or guidelines around using control structures within functions or methods? I'd love to hear your experiences and recommendations.
Thanks in advance for your help!
