Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::RequirePodAtEnd

NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::RequirePodAtEnd − All POD should be after "__END__".

AFFILIATION

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

DESCRIPTION

Perl stops processing code when it sees an "__END__" statement. So, to save processing time, it’s faster to put documentation after the "__END__". Also, writing all the POD in one place usually leads to a more cohesive document, rather than being forced to follow the layout of your code. This policy issues violations if any POD is found before an "__END__".

CONFIGURATION

This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.

NOTES

Some folks like to use "=for", and "=begin", and "=end" tags to create block comments in-line with their code. Since those tags aren’t usually part of the documentation, this Policy does allows them to appear before the "__END__" statement.

    =begin comments
    frobulate()
    Accepts:  A list of things to frobulate
    Returns:  True if successful
    =end comments
    sub frobulate { ... }
