NAME

       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitAugmentedAssignmentInDeclaration - Do not write "
       my $foo .= 'bar'; ".

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

       Variable declarations that also do initialization with '=' are common.  Perl also allows
       you to use operators like '.=', '+=', etc., but it it is more clear to not do so.

           my $foo .= 'bar';              # same as my $foo = 'bar';
           our $foo *= 2;                 # same as our $foo = 0;
           my ( $foo, $bar ) += ( 1, 2 ); # same as my ( $foo, $bar ) = ( undef, 2 );
           local $Carp::CarpLevel += 1;   # same as local $Carp::CarpLevel = 1;
           state $foo += 2;               # adds 2 every time it's encountered

       Such constructs are usually the result of botched cut-and-paste, and often are bugs. Some
       produce warnings.

CONFIGURATION

       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
