Perl::Critic::Policy::ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitConstantPragma - Don't use constant FOO => 15.
use constant FOO => 15
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.
Named constants are a good thing. But don't use the constant pragma because barewords don't interpolate. Instead use the Readonly module.
use constant FOOBAR => 42; #not ok
Readonly my $FOOBAR => 42; #ok
Readonly::Scalar my $FOOBAR => 42; #ok
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
