NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::RestrictLongStrings - Stop
       mixing long strings with	code.

AFFILIATION
       This policy is part of Perl::Critic::More, a bleeding edge supplement
       to Perl::Critic.

DESCRIPTION
       Long text strings in the	middle of code is very distracting and wreaks
       havoc on	code formatting.  Consider putting long	strings	in external
       data files, "__DATA__" sections,	or in their own	subroutines.

       This policy complains if	a long string is not the last line of a
       subroutine.  "Long" is defined as 78 characters by default.  This value
       can be altered in your Perl::Critic configuration via the "max_length"
       property.  For example, you may add the following to your .perlcriticrc
       file:

	 [ValuesAndExpressions::RestrictLongStrings]
	 max_length = 50

TODO
       Add option to allow long	strings	that don't include newlines.
