in reply to Request for Comments on Perl::Critic
I used Perl::Critic 0.12 to clean some legacy
code and I was impressed. Now I see that the latest version
has many enhancements, and such a task should be much
I like the interface, although the policy names are a
little scary. If you could find a way of making them
shorter (or even identifiable by some acronym, for instance
ppwb as a shortcut to ProhibitParensWithBuiltins) perhaps
they could become a habit for command line enthusiasts.
As for your plan to enhancements, I see very favourably
your idea of covering most of Conway's book, but I don't
think I would use a feature that changes my code
automatically based on some rule. Sure it looks
interesting, but I produce just enough bugs manually, that
I don't need the ones introduced in my code
Kudos for this great job!
