Manual Reference Pages - PERL::CRITIC::POLICY::CLASSHIERARCHIES::PROHIBITAUTOLOADING (3)
Perl::Critic::Policy::ClassHierarchies::ProhibitAutoloading - AUTOLOAD methods should be avoided.
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic
Declaring a subroutine with the name "AUTOLOAD" will violate this
Policy. The AUTOLOAD mechanism is an easy way to generate methods
for your classes, but unless they are carefully written, those classes
are difficult to inherit from. And over time, the AUTOLOAD method
will become more and more complex as it becomes responsible for
dispatching more and more functions. Youre better off writing
explicit accessor methods. Editor macros can help make this a little
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
