NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitLoopOnHash - Don't write loops on hashes, only on keys and values of hashes

VERSION

version 0.008

DESCRIPTION

When "looping over hashes," we mean looping over hash keys or hash values. If you forgot to call keys or values you will accidentally loop over both.

    foreach my $foo (%hash) {...}        # not ok
    action() for %hash;                  # not ok
    foreach my $foo ( keys %hash ) {...} # ok
    action() for values %hash;           # ok

An effort is made to detect expressions:

    action() for %hash ? keys %hash : ();                             # ok
    action() for %{ $hash{'stuff'} } ? keys %{ $hash{'stuff'} } : (); # ok

(Granted, the second example there doesn't make much sense, but I have found a variation of it in real code.)

CONFIGURATION

This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
