Perl::Critic::Policy::CUseroContributed:PerlhDocumentationhSpecialBlockNames(3))

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::ControlStructures::ProhibitLabelsWithSpecialBlockNames
       - Don't use labels that are the same as the special block names.

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

DESCRIPTION
       When using one of the special Perl blocks "BEGIN", "END", "CHECK",
       "INIT", and "UNITCHECK",	it is easy to mistakenly add a colon to	the
       end of the block	name.  E.g.:

	   # a BEGIN block that	gets executed at compile time.
	   BEGIN { <...code...>	}

	   # an	ordinary labeled block that gets executed at run time.
	   BEGIN: { <...code...> }

       The labels "BEGIN:", "END:", etc. are probably errors.  This policy
       prohibits the special Perl block	names from being used as labels.

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