Perl::Critic::PolPerl:UsertContributed:PerloDocumentationbitAmpersandSigils(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitAmpersandSigils - Don't call
       functions with a	leading	ampersand sigil.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Since Perl 5, the ampersand sigil is completely optional	when invoking
       subroutines.  It	also turns off checking	of subroutine prototypes.
       It's easily confused with the bitwise 'and' operator.

	 @result = &some_function(); # not ok
	 @result = some_function();  # ok

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