       Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::RequirePodAtEnd - All POD should be after "__END__".


       This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.


       Perl stops processing code when it sees an "__END__" statement.  So, to save processing
       time, it's faster to put documentation after the "__END__".  Also, writing all the POD in
       one place usually leads to a more cohesive document, rather than being forced to follow
       the layout of your code.  This policy issues violations if any POD is found before an


       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.


       Some folks like to use "=for", and "=begin", and "=end" tags to create block comments in-
       line with their code.  Since those tags aren't usually part of the documentation, this
       Policy does allows them to appear before the "__END__" statement.

           =begin comments

           Accepts:  A list of things to frobulate
           Returns:  True if successful

           =end comments

           sub frobulate { ... }
