NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::RequireGlobFunction

DESCRIPTION

Conway discourages the use of the <.. > construct for globbing, as it is easily confused with the angle bracket file input operator. Instead, he recommends the use of the glob() function as it makes it much more obvious what you're attempting to do.

  @files = <*.pl>;              # not ok
  @files = glob( "*.pl" );      # ok
