Perl::Critic::Policy::Lax::ProhibitLeadingZeros::ExceptChmod - leading zeroes are okay as the first arg to chmod


version 0.014


This is subclass of Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitLeadingZeros with no changes. It once allowed leading zeroes on numbers used as args to chmod, but in 2008 the default Perl::Critic policy became to allow leading zeroes there and in a few other places.


This library should run on perls released even a long time ago. It should work on any version of perl released in the last five years.

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
