NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Miscellanea::TextDomainUnused - check for Locale::TextDomain
       imported but unused

DESCRIPTION

       This policy is part of the "Perl::Critic::Pulp" add-on.  It reports when you have
       "Locale::TextDomain" like

           use Locale::TextDomain ('MyMessageDomain');

       but then don't use any of its functions or variables

           __ __x __n __nx __xn
           __p __px __np __npx
           N__ N__n N__p N__np
           %__ $__

       "Locale::TextDomain" is not needed when not used, but it's also not actively harmful so
       this policy is only low severity and under the "cosmetic" theme (see "POLICY THEMES" in
       Perl::Critic).

       The check is good if you've got "Locale::TextDomain" as boilerplate code in most of your
       program, but in some modules it's unused.  You can remove it entirely from non-interactive
       modules, or comment it out from modules which might have messages but don't yet.  The best
       thing picked up is when your boilerplate has got into a programmatic module which
       shouldn't say anything at the user level.

       The saving from removing unused "Locale::TextDomain" is modest, just some imports and a
       hash entry holding the "textdomain" for the package.

       It's easy to imagine a general kind of "module imported but unused" policy check, but in
       practice its hard for perlcritic to know the automatic imports of every module, and quite
       a few modules have side-effects, so this TextDomainUnused policy just starts with one case
       of an unused include.

   Interpolated Variables
       The variables "%__" and "$__" are recognised in double-quote interpolated strings just by
       looking for a "$__" somewhere in the string, eg.

           print "*** $__{'A Message'} ***\n";  # ok

       It's not hard to trick the recognition with escapes, or a hash slice style, but in general
       taking any "$__" to be a TextDomain use is close enough.  (Perhaps in the future PPI will
       do a full parse of interpolated expressions.)
