=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Community::Each - Don't use each to iterate through a


The C<each()> function relies on an iterator internal to a hash (or array),
which is the same iterator used by C<keys()> and C<values()>. So deleting or
adding hash elements during iteration, or just calling C<keys()> or C<values()>
on the hash, will cause undefined behavior and the code will likely break. This
could occur even by passing the hash to other functions which operate on the
hash. Instead, use a C<foreach> loop iterating through the keys or values of
the hash.

  while (my ($key, $value) = each %hash) { ... }                # not ok
  foreach my $key (keys %hash) { my $value = $hash{$key}; ... } # ok
  foreach my $i (0..$#array) { my $elem = $array[$i]; ... }     # ok
