Perl::Critic::Policy::Modules::UseriContributPerl::Critic::Policy::Modules::RequirePerlVersion(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Modules::RequirePerlVersion - Require a "use 5.006;" or similar.

AFFILIATION
       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::More, a bleeding edge supplement to Perl::Critic.

DESCRIPTION
       As Perl evolves, new desirable features get added.  The best ones seem to break backward
       compatibility, unfortunately.  As a favor to downstream developers, it's good to state
       explicitly which Perl version will not be able to parse your code.

       For example, the "our" keyword was first appeared in a stable Perl in version 5.6.0.
       Therefore, if your code employs "our", then you should have a line like this near the very
       top of your file:

	 use 5.006;

       or

	 use v5.6.0;

       The former is preferred as the latter can trigger v-string compatibility warnings.  (If
       someone could please explain that to me, I'd really appreciate it!)

       Additionally, it's good form to state that minimum version in your Makefile.PL or Build.PL
       file.
