NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::RequirePodLinksIncludeText - Provide text to display
       with your pod links.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       This Policy requires your POD links to contain text to override your POD translator's
       default link text, where this is possible.  Failure to provide your own text leaves you at
       the mercy of the POD translator, which may display something like "L<Foo>" as "the Foo
       manpage".

       By default, links that specify a documentation section (for example, "L<Foo/bar>", or
       "L</bar>") are exempt from this Policy.

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy has two boolean options to configure the handling of links that specify a
       documentation section.

       The "allow_external_sections" option configures the handling of links of the form
       "L<Foo/bar>".  If true, such links are accepted even without a text specification.  Such
       links tend to be turned into something like "bar in Foo".

       By default, this option is asserted.  If you want to prohibit things like "L<Foo/bar>"
       (while allowing things like "L<< Foo->bar()|Foo/bar >>"), put something like this in your
       .perlcriticrc:

        [Documentation::RequirePodLinksIncludeText]
        allow_external_sections = 0

       The "allow_internal_sections" option configures the handling of links of the form
       "L</bar>".  If true, such links are accepted even without a text specification.  Such
       links tend to be turned into something like "bar".

       By default, this option is asserted.  If you want to prohibit things like "L</bar>" (while
       allowing things like "L<bar()|/bar>"), put something like this in your .perlcriticrc:

        [Documentation::RequirePodLinksIncludeText]
        allow_internal_sections = 0
