Perl::Critic::Policy::UserLContributedtPerlPDocum::CodeLayout::RequireASCII(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireASCII -	Disallow high-bit
       characters.

AFFILIATION
       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::More, a bleeding edge supplement
       to Perl::Critic.

DESCRIPTION
       ASCII is	a text encoding	first introduced in 1963.  It represents 128
       characters in seven-bit bytes, reserving	the eighth bit for error
       detection.  Perl	supports a large number	of encodings.  However,	if you
       really want the ultimate	in backward compatibility, ASCII is it!	 (We
       won't even talk about EBCDIC and	the like...)

       This policy is not recommended for everyone.  Instead, most of you
       should probably strive for one of the Unicode encodings for maximum
       forward compatibility.
