Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::RestrictLongStrings - Stop mixing long strings with code.
Long text strings in the middle of code is very distracting and wreaks havoc on code formatting. Consider putting long strings in external data files,
__DATA__ sections, or in their own subroutines.
This policy complains if a long string is not the last line of a subroutine. "Long" is defined as 78 characters by default. This value can be altered in your Perl::Critic configuration via the
max_length property. For example, you may add the following to your .perlcriticrc file:
[ValuesAndExpressions::RestrictLongStrings] max_length = 50
Add option to allow long strings that don't include newlines.
