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

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitBuiltinHomonyms - Don't
       declare your own	"open" function.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Common sense dictates that you shouldn't	declare	subroutines with the
       same name as one	of Perl's built-in functions or	keywords.  See
       perlfunc	for a list of built-in functions; see perlsyn for keywords.

	 sub open {}	#not ok
	 sub exit {}	#not ok
	 sub print {}	#not ok
	 sub foreach {}	#not ok
	 sub if	{}	#not ok

	 #You get the idea...

       Exceptions are made for "BEGIN",	"END", "INIT" and "CHECK" blocks, as
       well as "AUTOLOAD", "DESTROY", and "import" subroutines.

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

CAVEATS
       It is reasonable	to declare an object method with the same name as a
       Perl built-in function, since they are easily distinguished from	each
       other.  However,	at this	time, Perl::Critic cannot tell whether a
       subroutine is static or an object method.
