NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitParensWithBuiltins - Write "open $handle, $path" instead of "open($handle, $path)". AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
Conway suggests that all built-in functions be called without parentheses around the argument list. This reduces visual clutter and disambiguates built-in functions from user functions. Exceptions are made for "my", "local", and "our" which require parentheses when called with multiple arguments. open($handle, '>', $filename); #not ok open $handle, '>', $filename; #ok split(/$pattern/, @list); #not ok split /$pattern/, @list; #ok CONFIGURATION
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options. NOTES
Coding with parentheses can sometimes lead to verbose and awkward constructs, so I think the intent of Conway's guideline is to remove only the unnecessary parentheses. This policy makes exceptions for some common situations where parentheses are usually required. However, you may find other situations where the parentheses are necessary to enforce precedence, but they cause still violations. In those cases, consider using the '## no critic' comments to silence Perl::Critic. BUGS
Some builtin functions (particularly those that take a variable number of scalar arguments) should probably get parentheses. This policy should be enhanced to allow the user to specify a list of builtins that are exempt from the policy. AUTHOR

Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitQuotedWordListUser Contributed Perl DocumentPerl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitQuotedWordLists(3)

NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitQuotedWordLists - Write "qw(foo bar baz)" instead of "('foo', 'bar', 'baz')". AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
Conway doesn't mention this, but I think "qw()" is an underused feature of Perl. Whenever you need to declare a list of one-word literals, the "qw()" operator is wonderfully concise, and makes it easy to add to the list in the future. @list = ('foo', 'bar', 'baz'); #not ok @list = qw(foo bar baz); #ok use Foo ('foo', 'bar', 'baz'); #not ok use Foo qw(foo bar baz); #ok CONFIGURATION
This policy can be configured to only pay attention to word lists with at least a particular number of elements. By default, this value is 2, which means that lists containing zero or one elements are ignored. The minimum list size to be looked at can be specified by giving a value for "min_elements" in .perlcriticrc like this: [CodeLayout::ProhibitQuotedWordLists] min_elements = 4 This would cause this policy to only complain about lists containing four or more words. By default, this policy won't complain if any of the values in the list contain non-word characters. If you want it to, set the "strict" option to a true value. [CodeLayout::ProhibitQuotedWordLists] strict = 1 NOTES
In the PPI parlance, a "list" is almost anything with parentheses. I've tried to make this Policy smart by targeting only "lists" that could be sensibly expressed with "qw()". However, there may be some edge cases that I haven't covered. If you find one, send me a note. IMPORTANT CHANGES
This policy was formerly called "RequireQuotedWords" which seemed a little counter-intuitive. If you get lots of "Cannot load policy module" errors, then you probably need to change "RequireQuotedWords" to "ProhibitQuotedWordLists" in your .perlcriticrc file. AUTHOR
