Perl::Critic::Policy::UserrContributedPPerlyDocumentatnes::ProhibitManyArgs(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitManyArgs - Too many
       arguments.

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

DESCRIPTION
       Subroutines that	expect large numbers of	arguments are hard to use
       because programmers routinely have to look at documentation to remember
       the order of those arguments.  Many arguments is	often a	sign that a
       subroutine should be refactored or that an object should	be passed to
       the routine.

CONFIGURATION
       By default, this	policy allows up to 5 arguments	without	warning.  To
       change this threshold, put entries in a .perlcriticrc file like this:

	 [Subroutines::ProhibitManyArgs]
	 max_arguments = 6

CAVEATS
       PPI doesn't currently detect anonymous subroutines, so we don't check
       those.  This should just	work when PPI gains that feature.

       We don't	check for @ARG,	the alias for @_ from English.pm.  That's
       deprecated anyway.

TO DO
       Don't include $self and $class in the count.

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