NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireASCII - Disallow high-bit characters.

CONTENTS

AFFILIATION

This policy is part of Perl::Critic::More, a bleeding edge supplement to Perl::Critic.

DESCRIPTION

ASCII is a text encoding first introduced in 1963. It represents 128 characters in seven-bit bytes, reserving the eighth bit for error detection. Perl supports a large number of encodings. However, if you really want the ultimate in backward compatibility, ASCII is it! (We won’t even talk about EBCDIC and the like...)

This policy is <B>notB> recommended for everyone. Instead, most of you should probably strive for one of the Unicode encodings for maximum forward compatibility.
