NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Miscellanea::ProhibitFormats - Do not use "format".

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Formats are one of the oldest features of Perl.  Unfortunately, they suffer from several
       limitations.  Formats are static and cannot be easily defined at run time.  Also, formats
       depend on several obscure global variables.

       For more modern reporting tools, consider using one of the template frameworks like
       Template or try the Perl6::Form module.

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
