The London Perl and Raku Workshop takes place on 26th Oct 2024. If your company depends on Perl, please consider sponsoring and/or attending.


Perl::Critic::Policy::CodeLayout::RequireConsistentNewlines - Use the same newline through the source.


This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.


Source code files are divided into lines with line endings of \r, \n or \r\n. Mixing these different line endings causes problems in many text editors and, notably, Module::Signature and GnuPG.


This policy works outside of PPI because PPI automatically normalizes source code to local newline conventions. So, this will only work if we know the filename of the source code.


This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
