Perl::Critic::Policy:PUser:ContributediPerlIDocumentationNAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::RequireCheckedClose -	Write "my
       $error =	close $fh;" instead of "close $fh;".

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

DESCRIPTION
       The perl	builtin	I/O function "close" returns a false value on failure.
       That value should be checked to ensure that the close was successful.

	   my $error = close $filehandle;		    # ok
	   close $filehandle or	die "unable to close: $!";  # ok
	   close $filehandle;				    # not ok

	   use autodie qw< :io >;
	   close $filehandle;				    # ok

       You can use autodie, Fatal, or Fatal::Exception to get around this.
       Currently, autodie is not properly treated as a pragma; its lexical
       effects aren't taken into account.

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