Well, I guess it really depends on what you are being explict about :)

The other replys to this node all have valid points. However, what if I really did want to return undef? This is valid use case too.

    Perl::Critic has a section about "Bending the Rules" -- you can bypass criticism if you really intended something. It's good if you usually follow the rules, but don't want to be hassled when you're knowingly breaking them.

    return undef; ## no critic

    -xdg
