Perl::Critic::Policy::RPerl::Critic::Policy::RegularExpressions::ProhibitSingleCharAlternation(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::RegularExpressions::ProhibitSingleCharAlternation - Use "[abc]"
       instead of "a|b|c".

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

DESCRIPTION
       Character classes (like "[abc]") are significantly faster than single character
       alternations (like "(?:a|b|c)").  This policy complains if you have more than one instance
       of a single character in an alternation.  So "(?:a|the)" is allowed, but "(?:a|e|i|o|u)"
       is not.

       NOTE: Perl 5.10 (not released as of this writing) has major regexp optimizations which may
       mitigate the performance penalty of alternations, which will be rewritten behind the
       scenes as something like character classes.  Consequently, if you are deploying
       exclusively on 5.10, yo might consider ignoring this policy.

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

CREDITS
       Initial development of this policy was supported by a grant from the Perl Foundation.
