NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitAmpersandSigils - Don't call functions with a
       leading ampersand sigil.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Since Perl 5, the ampersand sigil is completely optional when invoking subroutines.  It
       also turns off checking of subroutine prototypes.  It's easily confused with the bitwise
       'and' operator.

         @result = &some_function(); # not ok
         @result = some_function();  # ok

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
