       Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitLeadingZeros - Write "oct(755)"
       instead of "0755".


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


       Perl interprets numbers with leading zeros as octal.  If that's what you really want, its
       better to use "oct" and make it obvious.

           $var = 041;     # not ok, actually 33
           $var = oct(41); # ok

           chmod 0644, $file;                              # ok by default
           dbmopen %database, 'foo.db', 0600;              # ok by default
           mkdir $directory, 0755;                         # ok by default
           sysopen $filehandle, $filename, O_RDWR, 0666;   # ok by default
           umask 0002;                                     # ok by default

           use POSIX 'mkfifo';
           mkfifo $fifo, 0600;                             # ok by default
           POSIX::mkfifo $fifo, 0600;                      # ok by default


       If you want to ban all leading zeros, set "strict" to a true value in a .perlcriticrc

           strict = 1
