Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFuUPerl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitSleepViaSelect(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitSleepViaSelect - Use Time::HiRes instead
       of something like "select(undef, undef, undef, .05)".

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

DESCRIPTION
       Conway discourages the use of "select()" for performing non-integer sleeps.  Although
       documented in perlfunc, it's something that generally requires the reader to read "perldoc
       -f select" to figure out what it should be doing.  Instead, Conway recommends that you use
       the "Time::HiRes" module when you want to sleep.

	   select undef, undef, undef, 0.25;	     # not ok

	   use Time::HiRes;
	   sleep( 0.25 );			     # ok

CONFIGURATION
       This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.

SEE ALSO
       Time::HiRes.
