perl::critic::policy::codelayout::prohibithardtabs(3pm) [debian man page]

Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs(3pm) User Contributed Perl DocumentationPerl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs(3pm)

NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs - Use spaces instead of tabs. AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
Putting hard tabs in your source code (or POD) is one of the worst things you can do to your co-workers and colleagues, especially if those tabs are anywhere other than a leading position. Because various applications and devices represent tabs differently, they can cause you code to look vastly different to other people. Any decent editor can be configured to expand tabs into spaces. Perl::Tidy also does this for you. This Policy catches all tabs in your source code, including POD, quotes, and HEREDOCs. The contents of the "__DATA__" section are not examined. CONFIGURATION
Hard tabs in a string are always forbidden (use " " instead). But hard tabs in a leading position are allowed when they are used to indent code statements, "qw()" word lists, and regular expressions with the "/x" modifier. However, if you want to forbid all tabs everywhere, then add this to your .perlcriticrc file: [CodeLayout::ProhibitHardTabs] allow_leading_tabs = 0 NOTES
Beware that Perl::Critic may report the location of the string that contains the tab, not the actual location of the tab, so you may need to do some hunting. I'll try and fix this in the future. AUTHOR

Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireTrailingCommas(User Contributed Perl DocumentatPerl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireTrailingCommas(3)

NAME
Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireTrailingCommas - Put a comma at the end of every multi-line list declaration, including the last one. AFFILIATION
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution. DESCRIPTION
Conway suggests that all elements in a multi-line list should be separated by commas, including the last element. This makes it a little easier to re-order the list by cutting and pasting. my @list = ($foo, $bar, $baz); #not ok my @list = ($foo, $bar, $baz,); #ok CONFIGURATION
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options. NOTES
In the PPI parlance, a "list" is almost anything with parentheses. I've tried to make this Policy smart by targeting only "lists" that have at least one element and are being assigned to something. However, there may be some edge cases that I haven't covered. If you find one, send me a note. AUTHOR
