NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitEscapedCharacters

DESCRIPTION

Escaped numeric values are hard to read and debug. Instead, use named values. The syntax is less compact, but dramatically more readable.

  $str = "\x7F\x06\x22Z";                         # not ok

  use charnames ':full';
  $str = "\N{DELETE}\N{ACKNOWLEDGE}\N{CANCEL}Z";  # ok
