=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::RequireConstantVersion - Require $VERSION to be a constant rather than a computed value.


This Policy is part of the core L<Perl::Critic|Perl::Critic>


The $VERSION variable of a module should be a simple constant - either a
number, a single-quotish string, or a 'use version' object. In the latter case
the 'use version;' must appear on the same line as the object construction.

Computing the version has problems of various severities.

The most benign violation is computing the version from (e.g.) a Subversion
revision number:

    our ($VERSION) = q$REVISION: 42$ =~ /(\d+)/;

The problem here is that the version is tied to a single repository. The code
can not be moved to another repository (even of the same type) without
changing its version, possibly in the wrong direction.

This policy accepts v-strings (C<v1.2.3> or just plain C<1.2.3>), since these
are already flagged by


The proper way to set a module's $VERSION to a C<version> object is to
C<use version;> on the same line of code that assigns the value of $VERSION.
That way, L<ExtUtils::MakeMaker|ExtUtils::MakeMaker> and
L<Module::Build|Module::Build> can extract the version when packaging the
module for CPAN. By default, this policy declares an error if this is not

Should you wish to allow version objects without loading the version module on
the same line, add the following to your configuration file:

    allow_version_without_use_on_same_line = 1

=head1 CAVEATS

There will be false negatives if the $VERSION appears on the left-hand side of
a list assignment that assigns to more than one variable, or to C<undef>.

There may be false positives if the $VERSION is assigned the value of a here
document. This will probably remain the case until
L<PPI::Token::HereDoc|PPI::Token::HereDoc> acquires the relevant portions of
the L<PPI::Token::Quote|PPI::Token::Quote> interface.

There will be false positives if $VERSION is assigned the value of a constant
created by the L<Readonly|Readonly> module or the L<constant|constant> pragma,
because the necessary infrastructure appears not to exist, and the author of
the present module lacked the knowledge/expertise/gumption to put it in place.

Currently the idiom

    our $VERSION = '1.005_05';
    $VERSION = eval $VERSION;

will produce a violation on the second line of the example.
