Perl::Critic::PolPerl:UsertContributed:PerlaDocumentationtPerl4PackageNames(3)

NAME
       Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitPerl4PackageNames - Use	double
       colon (::) to separate package name components instead of single	quotes
       (').

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

DESCRIPTION
       Perl 5 kept single quotes ("'") as package component separators in
       order to	remain backward	compatible with	prior "perl"s, but advocated
       using double colon ("::") instead.  In the more than a decade since
       Perl 5, double colons have been overwhelmingly adopted and most people
       are not even aware that the single quote	can be used in this manner.
       So, unless you're trying	to obfuscate your code,	don't use them.

	   package Foo::Bar::Baz;    #ok
	   package Foo'Bar'Baz;	     #not ok

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