NAME

Perl::Critic::Freenode - Perl::Critic policies inspired by #perl on freenode IRC

SYNOPSIS

  $ perlcritic --theme freenode script.pl
  $ perlcritic --theme freenode lib/
  
  # .perlcriticrc
  theme = freenode
  severity = 1

DESCRIPTION

A set of Perl::Critic policies to enforce the practices generally recommended by the denizens of #perl on Freenode IRC. Because this policy "theme" is designed to be used with zero configuration on the command line, some duplication will occur if it is used in combination with core Perl::Critic policies.

AFFILIATION

This module has no functionality, but instead contains documentation for this distribution and acts as a means of pulling other modules into a bundle. All of the Policy modules contained herein will have an "AFFILIATION" section announcing their participation in this grouping.
