Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitImplicitNewlines − Use concatenation or HEREDOCs instead of literal line breaks in strings.
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.
Strings with embedded line breaks are hard to read. Use concatenation or HEREDOCs instead.
my $foo = "Line one is quite long Line two"; # Bad my $foo = "Line one is quite long\nLine two"; # Better, but still hard to read my $foo = "Line one is quite long\n" . "Line two"; # Better still my $foo = <<'EOF'; # Use heredoc for longer passages Line one is quite long Line two Line three breaks the camel's back EOF
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
