NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::logicLAB::ModuleBlacklist - blacklist modules you want to prohibit use of

AFFILIATION

This policy is a policy in the Perl::Critic::logicLAB distribution. The policy is themed: logiclab.

VERSION

This documentation describes version 0.03

DESCRIPTION

This policy can be used to specify a list of unwanted modules. Using a blacklisting, so if the modules are used in the evaluated code a violation is triggered.

In addition to blacklisting modules it is possible to recommend alternatives to blacklisted modules.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT

modules

You can blacklist modules using the configuration parameter modules

    [logicLAB::ModuleBlacklist]
    modules = IDNA::Punycode

If you want to blacklist multiple modules specify using a comma separated list:

    [logicLAB::ModuleBlacklist]
    modules = Try::Tiny, Contextual::Return, IDNA::Punycode

If you want to recommend alternatives to, use fat comma in addition

    [logicLAB::ModuleBlacklist]
    modules = Try::Tiny => TryCatch, Contextual::Return, IDNA::Punycode => Net::IDN::Encode

MOTIVATION

I once read an article which compared programming languages to natural languages. Programming languages in themselves are not large as such, but if you also regard the APIs, data structures and components a computer programmer use on a daily basis, the amount is enormous.

Where I work We try to keep a more simple code base, the complexity is in our business and that is our primary problem area, so it should not be difficult to understand the code used to model this complexity.

So sometimes it is necessary to make a decision on what should be allowed in our code base and what should not. This policy aims to support this coding practice.

The practice it basically to prohibit problematic components and recommend alternatives where possible.
