Manual Reference Pages - PERL::CRITIC::POLICY::NAMINGCONVENTIONS::PROHIBITAMBIGUOUSNAMES (3)
Perl::Critic::Policy::NamingConventions::ProhibitAmbiguousNames - Dont use vague variable or subroutine names like last or record.
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic
Conway lists a collection of English words which are highly ambiguous
as variable or subroutine names. For example, $last can mean
previous or final.
This policy tests against a list of ambiguous words for variable
The default list of forbidden words is:
abstract bases close contract last left no record right second set
This list can be changed by giving a value for forbid of a series
of forbidden words separated by spaces.
For example, if you decide that bases is an OK name for variables
(e.g. in bioinformatics), then put something like the following in
forbid = last set left right no abstract contract record second close
Currently this policy checks the entire variable and subroutine name,
not parts of the name. For example, it catches $last but not
$last_record. Hopefully future versions will catch both cases.
Some variable statements will be false positives if they have
assignments where the right hand side uses forbidden names. For
example, in this case the last incorrectly triggers a violation.
my $previous_record = $Foo::last;
