Perl::Critic::PolPerl:UsertContributed:PerlrDocumentation:ProhibitDeepNests(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::ControlStructures::ProhibitDeepNests - Don't
       write deeply nested loops and conditionals.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Deeply nested code is often hard	to understand and may be a sign	that
       it needs	to be refactored.  There are several good books	on how to
       refactor	code.  I like Martin Fowler's "Refactoring: Improving The
       Design of Existing Code".

CONFIGURATION
       The maximum number of nested control structures can be configured via a
       value for "max_nests" in	a .perlcriticrc	file.  Each for-loop, if-else,
       while, and until	block is counted as one	nest.  Postfix forms of	these
       constructs are not counted.  The	default	maximum	is 5.  Customization
       in a .perlcriticrc file looks like this:

	   [ControlStructures::ProhibitDeepNests]
	   max_nests = 3
