NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::RegularExpressions::ProhibitUnusualDelimiters - Use only "//" or
       "{}" to delimit regexps.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Perl lets you delimit regular expressions with almost any character, but most choices are
       illegible.  Compare these equivalent expressions:

         s/foo/bar/;   # good
         s{foo}{bar};  # good
         s#foo#bar#;   # bad
         s;foo;bar;;   # worse
         s|\|\||\||;   # eye-gouging bad

CONFIGURATION

       There is one option for this policy, "allow_all_brackets".  If this is true, then, in
       addition to allowing "//" and "{}", the other matched pairs of "()", "[]", and "<>" are
       allowed.

CREDITS

       Initial development of this policy was supported by a grant from the Perl Foundation.
