If a variable is defined and assigned in a conditional statement,
it is not defined behavior in Perl.

For more inforamtion about this behavior see

"NOTE: The behaviour of a my, state, or our modified with a statement
modifier conditional or loop construct (for example, my $x if ... )
is undefined.
The value of the my variable may be undef, any previously assigned
value, or possibly anything else.
Don't rely on it. Future versions of perl might do something different
from the version of perl you try it out on. Here be dragons."
