NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitMatchVars - Avoid "$`", "$&", "$'" and their
       English equivalents.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Using the "match variables" "$`", $&, and/or "$'" can significantly degrade the
       performance of a program.  This policy forbids using them or their English equivalents.
       See perldoc English or PBP page 82 for more information.

       It used to forbid plain "use English;" because it ends up causing the performance side-
       effects of the match variables.  However, the message emitted for that situation was not
       at all clear and there is now
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Modules::RequireNoMatchVarsWithUseEnglish, which addresses this
       situation directly.

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
