NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitManyArgs - Too many arguments.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Subroutines that expect large numbers of arguments are hard to use because programmers
       routinely have to look at documentation to remember the order of those arguments.  Many
       arguments is often a sign that a subroutine should be refactored or that an object should
       be passed to the routine.

CONFIGURATION

       By default, this policy allows up to 5 arguments without warning.  To change this
       threshold, put entries in a .perlcriticrc file like this:

         [Subroutines::ProhibitManyArgs]
         max_arguments = 6

       To ignore $self or $class in your argument count, as long as they're the first argument,
       use:

         [Subroutines::ProhibitManyArgs]
         skip_object = 1

CAVEATS

       PPI doesn't currently detect anonymous subroutines, so we don't check those.  This should
       just work when PPI gains that feature.

       We don't check for @ARG, the alias for @_ from English.pm.  That's deprecated anyway.

CREDITS

       Initial development of this policy was supported by a grant from the Perl Foundation.
