Perl::Critic::PoPerl::UseriContributedCPerlHDocumentationrohibitAutoloading(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::ClassHierarchies::ProhibitAutoloading - AUTOLOAD
       methods should be avoided.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Declaring a subroutine with the name "AUTOLOAD" will violate this
       Policy.	The "AUTOLOAD" mechanism is an easy way	to generate methods
       for your	classes, but unless they are carefully written,	those classes
       are difficult to	inherit	from.  And over	time, the "AUTOLOAD" method
       will become more	and more complex as it becomes responsible for
       dispatching more	and more functions.  You're better off writing
       explicit	accessor methods.  Editor macros can help make this a little
       easier.

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