Module Version: 1.122   Source   Latest Release: Perl-Critic-1.123

NAME ^

Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::RequireCheckedOpen - Write my $error = open $fh, $mode, $filename; instead of open $fh, $mode, $filename;.

AFFILIATION ^

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

DESCRIPTION ^

The perl builtin I/O function open returns a false value on failure. That value should always be checked to ensure that the open was successful.

    my $error = open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename );                  # ok
    open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename ) or die "unable to open: $!";  # ok
    open( $filehandle, $mode, $filename );                              # not ok

    use autodie;
    open $filehandle, $mode, $filename;                                 # ok

You can use autodie, Fatal, or Fatal::Exception to get around this. Currently, autodie is not properly treated as a pragma; its lexical effects aren't taken into account.

CONFIGURATION ^

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
