Manual Reference Pages - PERL::CRITIC::BANGS (3)
Perl::Critic::Bangs - A collection of handy Perl::Critic policies
Perl::Critic::Bangs is a collection of Perl::Critic policies that
will help make your code better.
The rules included with the Perl::Critic::Bangs group include:
Commented-out code is usually noise. It should be removed.
Watch for comments like XXX, TODO, etc.
Tests should have a plan.
Variables like $user and $user2 are insufficiently distinguished.
Determining the class in a constructor by using ref($proto) || $proto is usually
a cut-n-paste that is incorrect.
Adding modifiers to a regular expression made up entirely of a
variable created with qr() is usually not doing what you expect.
Vague variables like $data or $info are not descriptive enough.
WHY IS IT CALLED Perl::Critic::Bangs?
I didnt want to call it Perl::Critic::Lester or Perl::Critic::Petdance
that would make it sound like they were only my rules. Other people
will likely include their own set of rules, too.
So I started thinking of names of famous critics. Ebert, Siskel,
Kael, etc. What about music critics? Greil Marcus, J.D. Considine...
Lester Bangs! Hes even got my name in his! So there was the name.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lester_Bangs for more on Lester Bangs.
