       Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::RequireEndBeforeLastPod - require __END__ before POD
       at end of file


       This policy is part of the "Perl::Critic::Pulp" add-on.  It requires that you put an
       "__END__" before POD which is at the end of a file.  For example,

           __END__     # good

           =head1 NAME

       and not merely

           1;          # bad

           =head1 NAME

       This is primarily a matter of personal preference, so the policy is low severity and only
       under the "cosmetic" theme (see "POLICY THEMES" in Perl::Critic).  An "__END__" like this
       has no effect on execution, but it's a fairly common convention since it's a good human
       indication you mean the code to end there, and it stops Perl parsing through the POD which
       may save a few nanoseconds.

       This policy is looser than "Documentation::RequirePodAtEnd".  This policy allows POD to be
       anywhere in among the code, the requirement is only that if the file ends with POD then
       you should have an "__END__" between the last code and last POD.

       A file of all POD, or all code, or which ends with code, is ok.  Ending with code is usual
       if you write your POD at the start of the file or in among the functions etc,


           And that's all.


           cleanup ();
           exit 0;     # good

       A file using "__DATA__" is always ok, since you can't have "__END__" followed by
       "__DATA__", wherever you want your POD.  If the "__DATA__" is in fact "SelfLoader" code
       then it can helpfully have an "__END__" within it, but as of "perlcritic" version 1.092 no
       checks at all are applied to SelfLoader sections.

       As always if you don't care about "__END__" you can disable "RequireEndBeforeLastPod" from
       your .perlcriticrc in the usual way (see "CONFIGURATION" in Perl::Critic),
