NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Freenode::OpenArgs - Always use the three-argument form of open

DESCRIPTION

       The "open()" function may be called in a two-argument form where the filename is parsed to
       determine the mode of opening, which may include piping input or output. (In the one-
       argument form, this filename is retrieved from a global variable, but the same magic is
       used.) This can lead to vulnerabilities if the filename is retrieved from user input or
       could begin or end with a special character. The three-argument form specifies the open
       mode as the second argument, so it is always distinct from the filename.

         open FILE;                   # not ok
         open my $fh, "<$filename";   # not ok
         open my $fh, '<', $filename; # ok

       This policy is similar to the core policy
       Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitTwoArgOpen, but additionally prohibits one-
       argument opens.
