NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Subroutines::ProhibitAmpersandSigils - Don't call functions with a leading ampersand sigil.

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

Since Perl 5, the ampersand sigil is completely optional when invoking subroutines. It also turns off checking of subroutine prototypes. It's easily confused with the bitwise 'and' operator.

  @result = &some_function(); # not ok
  @result = some_function();  # ok

CONFIGURATION

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
