NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitImplicitNewlines - Use concatenation
       or HEREDOCs instead of literal line breaks in strings.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Strings with embedded line breaks are hard to read.  Use concatenation or HEREDOCs
       instead.

           my $foo = "Line one is quite long
           Line two";                                    # Bad

           my $foo = "Line one is quite long\nLine two"; # Better, but still hard to read

           my $foo = "Line one is quite long\n"
               . "Line two";                               # Better still

           my $foo = <<'EOF';                            # Use heredoc for longer passages
           Line one is quite long
           Line two
           Line three breaks the camel's back
           EOF

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
