in reply to Regex Critic?

A couple of comments:
  • YAPE::Regex has not kept up with recent Perl versions. Here is a comment from YAPE::Regex::Explain LIMITATIONS: "There is no support for regular expression syntax added after Perl version 5.6, particularly any constructs added in 5.10". It can be used, just not for catching newer regex features.
  • Perl::Critic can be extended. Refer to: EXTENDING THE CRITIC

    Thanks. Good point about YAPE::Regex, I hurried past that on the first reading.

    I'll look into Perl::Critic extensions, as we already specify using it for production code.
