> Deparse tries to reproduce code,

True but B::Deparse has documented options to switch of the reconstruction of if from and-op. I chose one of the ways¹...

I also checked it with B::Terse before posting, just wanted to keep the post short.

Thanks for supporting my point. :)

> But the question is about the if statement.

¹)

-xLEVEL Expand conventional syntax constructions into equivalent ones that exp +ose their internal operation. ... If LEVEL is at least 7, "if" statements will be translated into equivalent expressions using "&&", "?:" and "do {}"; for instance
lanx@nc10-ubuntu:~$ perl -MO=Deparse,-x7 -e 'if($a){print $b}' $a and do { print $b }; -e syntax OK
