Perl::CrPerl::Critic::UsercContributedxPerlsDocumentationtUnusualDelimiters(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::RegularExpressions::ProhibitUnusualDelimiters -
       Use only	"//" or	"{}" to	delimit	regexps.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Perl lets you delimit regular expressions with almost any character,
       but most	choices	are illegible.	Compare	these equivalent expressions:

	 s/foo/bar/;   # good
	 s{foo}{bar};  # good
	 s#foo#bar#;   # bad
	 s;foo;bar;;   # worse
	 s|\|\||\||;   # eye-gouging bad

CONFIGURATION
       There is	one option for this policy, "allow_all_brackets".  If this is
       true, then, in addition to allowing "//"	and "{}", the other matched
       pairs of	"()", "[]", and	"<>" are allowed.

CREDITS
       Initial development of this policy was supported	by a grant from	the
       Perl Foundation.
