Perl::Critic::Policy::Community::PackageMatchesFilename - Module files should declare a package matching the filename
Perl modules are normally loaded by
require (possibly via
no). When given a module name,
require will translate this into a filename and then load whatever that file contains. The file doesn't need to actually contain a package matching the module name initially given to
require, but this can be confusing if later operations (including
import as called by
use) expect the package to exist. Furthermore, the absence of such a package is usually an indicator of a typo in the package name.
## in file My/Module.pm package My::Module;
This policy is similar to the core policy Perl::Critic::Policy::Modules::RequireFilenameMatchesPackage, but only requires that one package name within a module file matches the filename.
This policy is part of Perl::Critic::Community.
This policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
