Perl::Critic:Perl::CriUser:ContributedlPerluDocumentationireSimpleSortBlock(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::RequireSimpleSortBlock -	Sort
       blocks should have a single statement.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Conway advises that sort	functions should be simple.  Any complicated
       operations on list elements should be computed and cached (perhaps via
       a Schwartzian Transform)	before the sort, rather	than computed inside
       the sort	block, because the sort	block is called	"N log N" times
       instead of just "N" times.

       This policy prohibits the most blatant case of complicated sort blocks:
       multiple	statements.  Future policies may wish to examine the sort
       block in	more detail -- looking for subroutine calls or large numbers
       of operations.

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