NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::RequireNumberSeparators - Write 141_234_397.0145 instead of 141234397.0145 .

AFFILIATION

This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.

DESCRIPTION

Long numbers can be difficult to read. To improve legibility, Perl allows numbers to be split into groups of digits separated by underscores. This policy requires number sequences of more than three digits to be separated.

    $long_int = 123456789;   #not ok
    $long_int = 123_456_789; #ok

    $long_float = 12345678.001;   #not ok
    $long_float = 12_345_678.001; #ok

CONFIGURATION

The minimum absolute value of numbers that must contain separators can be configured via the min_value option. The default is 10,000; thus, all numbers >= 10,000 and <= -10,000 must have separators. For example:

    [ValuesAndExpressions::RequireNumberSeparators]
    min_value = 100000    # That's one-hundred-thousand!

NOTES

As it is currently written, this policy only works properly with decimal (base 10) numbers. And it is obviously biased toward Western notation. I'll try and address those issues in the future.
