Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFuUserPerl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::RequireGlobFunction(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::RequireGlobFunction - Use "glob q{*}" instead of
       <*>.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Conway discourages the use of the " <.." > construct for globbing, as it is easily
       confused with the angle bracket file input operator.  Instead, he recommends the use of
       the "glob()" function as it makes it much more obvious what you're attempting to do.

	   @files = <*.pl>;		 # not ok
	   @files = glob '*.pl';	 # ok

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