NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::TryTiny::ProhibitExitingSubroutine - Ban next/last/return in Try::Tiny blocks

VERSION

version 0.003

DESCRIPTION

Take this code:

    use Try::Tiny;

    for my $item (@array) {
        try {
            next if $item == 2;
            # other code
        }
        catch {
            warn $_;
        };
        # other code
    }

The next statement will not go to the next iteration of the for-loop, rather, it will exit the try block, emitting a warning if warnings are enabled.

This is probably not what the developer had intended, so this policy prohibits it.

One way to fix this is to use labels:

    use Try::Tiny;

    ITEM:
    for my $item (@array) {
        try {
            if ($item == 2) {
                no warnings 'exiting';
                next ITEM;
            }
            # other code
        }
        catch {
            warn $_;
        };
        # other code
    }

This policy assumes that Try::Tiny is being used, and it doesn't run if it can't find it being imported.

CONFIGURATION

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
