Perl::Critic::PPerl::CUsercContributeduPerlnDocumentationohibitUniversalCan(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitUniversalCan - Write
       "eval { $foo->can($name)	}" instead of "UNIVERSAL::can($foo, $name)".

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

DESCRIPTION
	   print UNIVERSAL::can($obj, 'Foo::Bar') ? 'yes' : 'no';  #not	ok
	   print eval {	$obj->can('Foo::Bar') }	? 'yes'	: 'no';	   #ok

       As of Perl 5.9.3, the use of UNIVERSAL::can as a	function has been
       deprecated and the method form is preferred instead.  Formerly, the
       functional form was recommended because it gave valid results even when
       the object was "undef" or an unblessed scalar.  However,	the functional
       form makes it impossible	for packages to	override "can()", a technique
       which is	crucial	for implementing mock objects and some facades.

       See UNIVERSAL::can for a	more thorough discussion of this topic.

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