confess 'Some error happened because ' . $obj->foo . ' blew up';
If those were double-quotes instead of single-quotes (which they probably were) then the warning was precisely correct.

No, that can't be it, because the strings in question contain none of the things Critic cares about, namely unescaped $. or @. and escaped metachars. I suspect that your parser is not detecting the fact that the confess argument is actually three strings concantenated together, and it's thinking the $obj is inside the string.

Anyway, I can't verify any of the above, since I can't get the confess line to trigger a warning from the web-based Critic now.

A word spoken in Mind will reach its own level, in the objective world, by its own weight

[Your Mother]: I am quite aware that Module::Build is MUCH more in favor with many monks but I had trouble with it every time I tried to use it and trouble with CPAN stuff that used it too.
[Your Mother]: Take my advice with a grain of salt. I haven't done a new CPAN release in years at this point.
[LanX]: I want to author a new module for CPAN w/o complicated build structure
[LanX]: ther is also Dist::Zilla :-/
[LanX]: How to make a CPAN Module Distribution from 2002
[Your Mother]: Dist::Zilla is kind of the nuclear option. I set it up back in the day but it's really targeted at authors who are managing MANY modules and want to automate everything.
[erix]: perlancar should know ;)
