Manual Reference Pages - PERL::CRITIC::POLICY::BUILTINFUNCTIONS::PROHIBITSLEEPVIASELECT (3)
Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitSleepViaSelect - Use Time::HiRes instead of something like "select(undef, undef, undef, .05)".
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic
Conway discourages the use of select() for performing non-integer
sleeps. Although documented in perlfunc, its something
that generally requires the reader to read perldoc -f select to
figure out what it should be doing. Instead, Conway recommends that
you use the Time::HiRes module when you want to sleep.
select undef, undef, undef, 0.25; # not ok
sleep( 0.25 ); # ok
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
