Perl::Critic::Policy::NamingConventions::ProhibitAmbiguoUsermContributed Perl DoPerl::Critic::Policy::NamingConventions::ProhibitAmbiguousNames(3)

NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::NamingConventions::ProhibitAmbiguousNames - Don't use vague variable or subroutine names like 'last' or 'record'. AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
Conway lists a collection of English words which are highly ambiguous as variable or subroutine names. For example, $last can mean previous or final. This policy tests against a list of ambiguous words for variable names. CONFIGURATION
The default list of forbidden words is: abstract bases close contract last left no record right second set This list can be changed by giving a value for "forbid" of a series of forbidden words separated by spaces. For example, if you decide that "bases" is an OK name for variables (e.g. in bioinformatics), then put something like the following in "$HOME/.perlcriticrc": [NamingConventions::ProhibitAmbiguousNames] forbid = last set left right no abstract contract record second close BUGS
Currently this policy checks the entire variable and subroutine name, not parts of the name. For example, it catches $last but not $last_record. Hopefully future versions will catch both cases. Some variable statements will be false positives if they have assignments where the right hand side uses forbidden names. For example, in this case the "last" incorrectly triggers a violation. my $previous_record = $Foo::last; AUTHOR

NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProtectPrivateVars - Prevent access to private vars in other packages. AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
By convention Perl authors (like authors in many other languages) indicate private methods and variables by inserting a leading underscore before the identifier. This policy catches attempts to access private variables from outside the package itself. CONFIGURATION
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options. HISTORY
This policy is inspired by a similar test in B::Lint SEE ALSO
