NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitReadlineInForLoop - Write "while( $line = <>
       ){...}" instead of "for(<>){...}".

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Using the readline operator in a "for" or "foreach" loop is very slow.  The iteration list
       of the loop creates a list context, which causes the readline operator to read the entire
       input stream before iteration even starts.  Instead, just use a "while" loop, which only
       reads one line at a time.

         for my $line ( <$file_handle> ){ do_something($line) }      #not ok
         while ( my $line = <$file_handle> ){ do_something($line) }  #ok

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
