Module Version: 1.121   Source   Latest Release: Perl-Critic-1.122

NAME ^

Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitConstantPragma - Don't use constant FOO => 15.

AFFILIATION ^

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

DESCRIPTION ^

Named constants are a good thing. But don't use the constant pragma because barewords don't interpolate. Instead use the Readonly module.

  use constant FOOBAR => 42;  #not ok

  use Readonly;
  Readonly my $FOOBAR => 42;  #ok
  Readonly::Scalar my $FOOBAR => 42;  #ok

CONFIGURATION ^

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
