falls far short of perlcritic standards
Are you listening to yourself? I mean, really listening to yourself!
Perl::Critic is the embodiment of: the Perl-shy in a Perl world; the belt-&-braces man in a just-what's-needed-world; a functional-zealot in a side-effects-are-inevitable world; an OO-zealot in a procedural-can-be-efficient-and-correct world.
Perl::Critic is: Caution in Extremis, to point of paralysis; Careful to the point of paranoia; Deferential to the point of Indecisive; Follow my leader (even over the cliff).
Perl::Critic is the Sum of all Fears!
Imagine trying to live your life avoiding all the 51 million 200 thousand things that someone, somewhere believes are bad for you. Well that's what trying to follow Perl::Critic (with it's default settings) gives you.
Every single prejudice, dogma, and misunderstanding that any ex-COBOL, C++, VBasic or Haskell programmer ever had on their first excursion in Perl; applied rote--like a 5 year old reciting their times tables--without any application of knowledge, understanding or judgement.
Man up! Learn enough about the language you are programming in to make your own decisions. Make your own decisions and live with their consequences and learn from them; Don't let the machine tell you what to do!
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
