Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::RequireInterpolationOfMetachars - Warns that
you might have used single quotes when you really wanted double-quotes.
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.
This policy warns you if you use single-quotes or "q//" with a string that has unescaped
metacharacters that may need interpolation. Its hard to know for sure if a string really
should be interpolated without looking into the symbol table. This policy just makes an
educated guess by looking for metacharacters and sigils which usually indicate that the
string should be interpolated.
o Variable names to "use vars":
use vars '$x'; # ok
use vars ('$y', '$z'); # ok
use vars qw< $a $b >; # ok
o Things that look like e-mail addresses:
print 'firstname.lastname@example.org'; # ok
$address = 'email@example.com'; # ok
The "rcs_keywords" option allows you to stop this policy from complaining about things
that look like RCS variables, for example, in deriving values for $VERSION variables.
For example, if you've got code like
our ($VERSION) = (q<$Revision: 4126 $> =~ m/(\d+)/mx);
You can specify
rcs_keywords = Revision
in your .perlcriticrc to provide an exemption.
Perl's own "warnings" pragma also warns you about this.
