NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::RequireCheckedOpen - Write "my $error = open $fh,
       $mode, $filename;" instead of "open $fh, $mode, $filename;".

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       The perl builtin I/O function "open" returns a false value on failure. That value should
       always be checked to ensure that the open was successful.

           my $error = open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename );                  # ok
           open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename ) or die "unable to open: $!";  # ok
           open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename );                              # not ok

           use autodie;
           open $filehandle, $mode, $filename;                                 # ok

       You can use autodie, Fatal, or Fatal::Exception to get around this.  Currently, autodie is
       not properly treated as a pragma; its lexical effects aren't taken into account.

CONFIGURATION

       If you create a module that exports "autodie" you can tell this policy about it with the
       "autodie_modules" setting:

           [InputOutput::RequireCheckedSyscalls]
           autodie_modules = My::Thing
