'unless' statement with 'else'

Reports unless statements used with else. It is preferable to put the positive branch first.


# Bad practice a = 1 unless a > 2 puts 'a is 2 or less' else puts 'a is greater than 2' end

A quick-fix is available to convert an unless into if. After the quick-fix is applied, the result looks like this:

# Good practice a = 1 if a > 2 puts 'a is greater than 2' else puts 'a is 2 or less' end
