Why should use Swift's guard keyword?

Published Sep 11, 2017

Guard statement going to do . it is couple of different

  1. it is allow me to reduce nested if statement
  2. it is increase my scope which my variable accessible

if Statement

func doTatal(num1 : Int?, num2: Int?) {
  // nested if statement
    if let fistNum = num1 where num1 > 0 {
        if let lastNum = num2 where num2 < 50 {
            
          let total = fistNum + lastNum
        }
    }
 // don't allow me to access out of the scope 
 //total = fistNum + lastNum 
}

Guard statement

func doTatal(num1 : Int?, num2: Int?) {
   //reduce  nested if statement and check positive way not negative way 
    guard let fistNum = num1 where num1 > 0 else{
      return
    }
    guard  let lastNum = num2 where num2 < 50 else {
     return
    }
    // increase my scope which my variable accessible
    let total = fistNum + lastNum
    
}
