I don't think the topic has drifted.

The point I wanted to make was that a ternary conditional is a viable alternative to introducing a scope (a 3-line if), if statement modifiers are not favoured by local shop practices. (Which is a reasonable edict, even if I don't agree with it myself).

I'm not sure where you saw the explicit undef?

There was none. It came about in my snippet from employing a ternary, which requires one to put something "in the else" part.
