NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Modules::RequireNoMatchVarsWithUseEnglish - "use English" must be
       passed a "-no_match_vars" argument.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Due to unfortunate history, if you use the English module but don't pass in a
       "-no_match_vars" argument, all regular expressions in the entire program, not merely the
       module in question, suffer a significant performance penalty, even if you only import a
       subset of the variables.

           use English;                              # not ok
           use English '-no_match_vars';             # ok
           use English qw< $ERRNO -no_match_vars >;  # ok
           use English qw($OS_ERROR);                # not ok

       In the last example above, while the match variables aren't loaded into your namespace,
       they are still created in the "English" namespace and you still pay the cost.

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
