NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Compatibility::Gtk2Constants - new enough Gtk2 version for its
       constants

DESCRIPTION

       This policy is part of the "Perl::Critic::Pulp" add-on.  It requires that if you use
       certain constant subs from "Gtk2" and "Glib" then you must explicitly have a "use" of a
       high enough version of those modules.

           use Gtk2 1.160;
           ... return Gtk2::EVENT_PROPAGATE;  # bad

           use Gtk2 1.200 ':constants';
           ... return GDK_CURRENT_TIME;       # good

       The following "Gtk2" constants are checked,

           GTK_PRIORITY_RESIZE       # new in Gtk2 1.200 (devel 1.190)
           GDK_PRIORITY_EVENTS
           GDK_PRIORITY_REDRAW
           GDK_CURRENT_TIME

           EVENT_PROPAGATE           # new in Gtk2 1.220 (devel 1.210)
           EVENT_STOP

           GTK_PATH_PRIO_LOWEST      # new in Gtk2 1.220 (devel 1.211)
           GTK_PATH_PRIO_GTK
           GTK_PATH_PRIO_APPLICATION
           GTK_PATH_PRIO_THEME
           GTK_PATH_PRIO_RC
           GTK_PATH_PRIO_HIGHEST

       and the following "Glib" constants

           SOURCE_CONTINUE           # new in Glib 1.220 (devel 1.210)
           SOURCE_REMOVE

       The idea is to keep you from using the constants without a new enough "Gtk2" or "Glib".
       Of course there's a huge number of other things you might do that also require a new
       enough version, but these constants tripped me up a few times.

       The exact version numbers above and demanded are development versions.  You're probably
       best off rounding up to a "stable" one like 1.200 or 1.220.

       As always if you don't care about this and in particular if for instance you only ever use
       Gtk2 1.220 or higher anyway then you can disable "Gtk2Constants" from your .perlcriticrc
       in the usual way (see "CONFIGURATION" in Perl::Critic),

           [-Compatibility::Gtk2Constants]

   Constant Forms
       Constants are recognised as any of for instance

           EVENT_PROPAGATE
           Gtk2::EVENT_PROPAGATE
           Gtk2->EVENT_PROPAGATE
           &EVENT_PROPAGATE
           &Gtk2::EVENT_PROPAGATE

       When there's a class name given it's checked, so that other uses of say "EVENT_PROPAGATE"
       aren't picked up.

           Some::Other::Thing::EVENT_PROPAGATE      # ok
           Some::Other::Thing->EVENT_PROPAGATE      # ok
           &Some::Other::Thing::EVENT_PROPAGATE     # ok

       When there's no class name, then it's only assumed to be Gtk2 or Glib when the respective
       module has been included.

           use Something::Else;
           EVENT_PROPAGATE           # ok

           use Gtk2 ':constants';
           EVENT_PROPAGATE           # bad

       In the latter form there's no check for ":constants" or explicit import in the "use", it's
       assumed that if you've used Gtk2 then "EVENT_PROPAGATE" means that one no matter how the
       imports might be arranged.
