NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Freenode::PreferredAlternatives - Various modules with preferred
       alternatives

DESCRIPTION

       Various modules have alternatives that are preferred by the denizens of #perl on Freenode
       IRC, for various reasons which may include: buggy behavior, cruft, performance problems,
       maintainer issues, or simply better modern replacements.  This is a low severity
       complement to Perl::Critic::Policy::Freenode::DiscouragedModules.

MODULES

   Getopt::Std
       Getopt::Std was the original very simplistic command-line option processing module. It is
       now obsoleted by the much more complete solution Getopt::Long, which also supports short
       options, and is wrapped by modules such as Getopt::Long::Descriptive and
       Getopt::Long::Modern for simpler usage.

   JSON
       JSON.pm is old and full of slow logic. Use JSON::MaybeXS instead, it is a drop-in
       replacement in most cases.

   List::MoreUtils
       List::MoreUtils is a far more complex distribution than it needs to be. Use
       List::SomeUtils instead, or see List::Util or List::UtilsBy for alternatives.

   Mouse
       Mouse was created to be a faster version of Moose, a niche that has since been better
       filled by Moo. Use Moo instead.

   Readonly
       Readonly.pm is buggy and slow. Use Const::Fast or ReadonlyX instead, or the core pragma
       constant.

AFFILIATION

       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Freenode.

CONFIGURATION

       This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
