Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuPerl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitImplicitNewlines(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitImplicitNewlines - Use concatenation
       or HEREDOCs instead of literal line breaks in strings.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Strings with embedded line breaks are hard to read.  Use concatenation or HEREDOCs
       instead.

	   my $foo = "Line one is quite long
	   Line two";					 # Bad

	   my $foo = "Line one is quite long\nLine two"; # Better, but still hard to read

	   my $foo = "Line one is quite long\n"
	       . "Line two";				   # Better still

	   my $foo = <<'EOF';				 # Use heredoc for longer passages
	   Line one is quite long
	   Line two
	   Line three breaks the camel's back
	   EOF

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