Perl::Critic::PolicyParameter::Behavior::Integer - Actions appropriate for an integer parameter.


Provides a standard set of functionality for an integer Perl::Critic::PolicyParameter so that the developer of a policy does not have to provide it her/himself.

The parser provided by this behavior allows underscores ("_") in input values as in a Perl numeric literal.

NOTE: Do not instantiate this class. Use the singleton instance held onto by Perl::Critic::PolicyParameter.


This is considered to be a non-public class. Its interface is subject to change without notice.


initialize_parameter( $parameter, $specification )

Plug in the functionality this behavior provides into the parameter, based upon the configuration provided by the specification.

This behavior looks for two configuration items:


Optional. The minimum acceptable value. Inclusive.


Optional. The maximum acceptable value. Inclusive.

generate_parameter_description( $parameter )

Create a description of the parameter, based upon the description on the parameter itself, but enhancing it with information from this behavior.

In this case, this means including the minimum and maximum values.
