Perl::Critic::Utils::Perl - Utility functions for dealing with Perl language issues.
use Perl::Critic::Utils::Perl qw< :all >; my $name = symbol_without_sigil('$foo'); # $name is "foo".
This handles various issues with Perl, the language, that aren't necessarily PPI related.
This is considered to be a public module. Any changes to its interface will go through a deprecation cycle.
