NAME

       Perl::Critic::Pulp - some add-on perlcritic policies

DESCRIPTION

       This is a collection of add-on policies for "Perl::Critic".  They're under a "pulp" theme
       plus other themes according to their purpose (see "POLICY THEMES" in Perl::Critic).

   Bugs
       CodeLayout::ProhibitFatCommaNewline
           Avoid newline before "=>" not quoting.

       CodeLayout::ProhibitIfIfSameLine
           Avoid "} if () {" perhaps meant to be "elsif".

       Miscellanea::TextDomainPlaceholders
           Check keyword arguments to "__x()", "__nx()", etc.

       Modules::ProhibitUseQuotedVersion
           Don't quote a version requirement like "use Foo '1.5'"

       ValuesAndExpressions::RequireNumericVersion
           $VERSION plain number for comparisons and checking.

       ValuesAndExpressions::ConstantBeforeLt
           Avoid problems with "FOO < 123"

       ValuesAndExpressions::NotWithCompare
           Avoid problems with "! $x == $y"

       ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitArrayAssignAref
           Dubious "@array=[1,2,3]" array/arrayref assignments.

       ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitDuplicateHashKeys
           Duplicate literal keys "%h = (xyz=>123, xyz=>456)".

       ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitFiletest_f
           Don't use "-f".

       ValuesAndExpressions::UnexpandedSpecialLiteral
           "__PACKAGE__" etc special words not expanding.

   Compatibility
       Compatibility::ConstantPragmaHash
           Version requirement for hash style multi-constants.

       Compatibility::ConstantLeadingUnderscore
           Version requirement for constants with leading underscore.

       Compatibility::Gtk2Constants
           Gtk2 module version requirement for some constants.

       Compatibility::PerlMinimumVersionAndWhy
           Perl version declared against features used.

       Compatibility::PodMinimumVersion
           Perl version declared against POD features used.

       Compatibility::ProhibitUnixDevNull
           Prefer "File::Spec->devnull" over /dev/null.

   Efficiency
       Documentation::RequireEndBeforeLastPod
           Put "__END__" before POD at end of file.

       Miscellanea::TextDomainUnused
           "Locale::TextDomain" imported but not used.

           Comma "," at the end of list, if at a newline.

       CodeLayout::RequireFinalSemicolon
           Semicolon ";" on the last statement of a subroutine or block.

           Stray consecutive commas ",,"

       ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitNullStatements
           Stray semicolons ";"

           Don't duplicate "L<>" links in SEE ALSO sections.

       Documentation::ProhibitBadAproposMarkup
           Avoid "C<>" in NAME section, bad for man's "apropos" output.

           Have a "=cut" at end of file.

       Documentation::RequireLinkedURLs
           Use "L<>" markup on URLs.

   Selecting
       You can always enable or disable the policies you do or don't want (see "CONFIGURATION" in
       Perl::Critic).  You may have already realized that there's a wide range of builtin and
       add-on perlcritic policies ranging from buggy practice to deliberately restrictive or even
       quite bizarre.  You're not meant to pass everything.  Some policies may even be mutually
       contradictory.

       The restrictive policies are meant as building blocks for a limited house style.  For
       example "ProhibitBarewordDoubleColon" here, or something like "ProhibitUnlessBlocks".
       They're usually a matter of personal preference, and "non de gustibus disputandum" as they
       say in the classics.  Trying to follow all of them would give away big parts of the
       language and quite likely result in very un-typical code.

       Some of the restrictive policies are geared towards beginners.  "ProhibitUnknownBackslash"
       here or "RequireInitializationForLocalVars" are along those lines.  There might for
       instance be good backslashing which the prohibition doesn't recognise, or local variable
       initializers make no sense for output variables like $!, once you get to the level of
       knowing to use "local" to preserve such globals.

       In general the POD of each policy is supposed to explain the motivation so you can see
       whether you want it or not.  If you're not turning off or drastically customizing at least
       half of all policies then you're either not trying or you're much too easily lead!

OTHER NOTES

       In most of the perlcritic documentation, including the Pulp add-ons here, policy names
       appear without the full "Perl::Critic::Policy::..." class part.  In Emacs try
       "man-completion.el" to make "M-x man" automatically expand a suffix part at point, or
       "ffap-perl-module.el" for the same to go to the source.

       ·   <http://user42.tuxfamily.org/man-completion/index.html>

       ·   <http://user42.tuxfamily.org/ffap-perl-module/index.html>

       In perlcritic's output you can ask for %P to see the full policy package name to run
       "perldoc" or copy or follow etc.  Here's a good output format you can put in your
       .perlcriticrc.  The file:line:column: part is a style Emacs will recognise.

           verbose=%f:%l:%c:\n %P\n %m\n

       See Perl::Critic::Violation for all available "%" escapes.  perlcritic.el which comes with
       perlcritic has regexp patterns for Emacs to recognise the builtin perlcritic formats, but
       it's easier to output "file:line:column:" in the first place.
