Revision history for Perl-Critic-Bangs 1.12 Wed May 24 22:57:31 CDT 2017 ==================================== [DOCUMENTATION] Fixed docs on how to configure ProhibitCommentedOutCode. 1.11_03 Thu Jan 12 23:14:38 CST 2017 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] Removed Bangs::ProhibitUselessTopic, because it has been added to Perl::Critic as of version 1.122 as two separate policies, BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitUselessTopic and RegularExpressions::ProhibitUselessTopic. [FIXES] GitHub issue #16: Bangs::ProhibitBitwiseOperators had default themes of "core" and "bugs". It can't have a theme of "core" because that's for Perl::Critic's own policies. It now has default themes of "bangs" and "bugs". Thanks, William Braswell and Oliver Trosien. 1.11_02 Sun Nov 3 00:52:18 CDT 2013 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] Added Bangs::ProhibitUselessTopic to warn against constructs like: $_ =~ /foo/ or my $size = -s $_; where the $_ is unnecessary. 1.11_01 Mon Jun 24 10:09:32 CDT 2013 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] The Bangs::ProhibitVagueNames and Bangs::ProhibitNumberedNames policies have been updated in much the same way: * They now check names of subroutines as well as variables. * Their checks are now case-insensitive. * They only check variables or subroutines that you declare. They will no longer complain if you are forced to use someone else's poorly-named variable. NOTE: The functionality of checking subroutines is experimental. If it causes too many problems, I may remove it, or make it its own policy. [DOCUMENTATION] Added more documentation about how ProhibitNumberedNames does its matching. There was nothing in there that said that if "utf8" was an exception that "foo_utf8" would pass cleanly. 1.10 Mon Aug 20 14:26:07 CDT 2012 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] Added ProhibitDebuggingModules. Thanks to Mike Doherty for the code, and to Breno G. de Oliveira, Joel Berger and Jeffrey Thalhammer for helping with implementation details. 1.08 Mon Jun 20 11:56:49 CDT 2011 ==================================== Official release, no changes from 1.07_02 1.07_02 Tue May 17 11:06:41 CDT 2011 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] The list of bitwise operators prohibited is now: & | ^ ~ &= |= ^= 1.07_01 Mon May 16 23:48:20 CDT 2011 ==================================== As of 1.07_01, Perl::Critic::Bangs is released under Artistic License 2.0, rather than dual-licensed with the GPL. [ENHANCEMENTS] Added a new policy, ProhibitBitwiseOperators. Usually when you see a bitwise operator like | or & in a Perl program, it's a mistake that should have been || or &&. It also checks for ^ and ~ as bitwise ops. Thanks to Mike O'Regan. [FIXES] Remove use of Perl::Critic::Utils::PPIRegexp, which has been removed from the Perl-Critic distribution, with calls to native PPI methods. This allows P::C::Bangs to install when using perl 5.14. Thanks, Elliot Shank. 1.06 Sun May 23 00:56:49 CDT 2010 ==================================== [ENHANCEMENTS] ProhibitFlagComments now checks POD for XXXes and the like, not just comments. Thanks to Matt Boyle. 1.04 Sat Apr 17 11:13:42 CDT 2010 ==================================== [FIXED] Fixed a problem with dereferencing a node in ProhibitRefProtoOrProto. Thanks to Mike Hind. 1.02 Sat Mar 7 14:40:38 CST 2009 ==================================== No new features. Updated the licensing to be explicitly GPLv3 or Artistic 2.0. Removed incorrect tests for compatibility with Perl::Critic 1.098. 1.00 Mon May 26 19:10:40 CDT 2008 ==================================== Updated to work with modern Perl::Critic 1.084. Thanks to Elliot Shank for making that happen. [FIXES] Fixed bug in ProhibitCommentedOutCode which prevented custom configuration from working. [ENHANCEMENTS] Added utf8 to the list of exceptions in ProhibitNumberedNames. The exceptions are also now case-insensitive. Added ProhibitUselessRegexModifiers.pm policy switched to testing method that Perl::Critic uses. 0.22 Sun Jul 16 22:09:10 CDT 2006 ==================================== [FIXES] $1 no longer runs afoul of ProhibitNumberedNames 0.20 Fri Jul 14 22:36:09 CDT 2006 ==================================== First real working version that you'd want to install.
