Jeff,

Howdy, I have been using your module for all my code. Currently I turn off two things for Perl::Critic,

  1. RCS Control: am not using Subversion or CVS so I don't need that information in my modules.
  2. Tidy: I like tidy, however, I only recently got an email that PerlTidy had fixed a bug with its handling of attributes (it was breaking my Class::Std code).

Otherwise I will accept 95% of the suggestions submitted by Perl::Critic and tell it to ignore the other 5% (generally this has to do with concating single and double quoted strings.

Some people complain about the rules used by Perl::Critic, most of the complaints are about personal preference rather than the rule itself. I am willing to give up some of my preferences, which I am not particularly passionate about, to have very consistent code. I have found it easier to read and maintain code that I had write months ago when I did this.

Overall, I have been very happy with the code I have written and validated by Perl::Critic and will continue to use it in the future.
