=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::RegularExpressions::RequireDotMatchAnything - Always use the C</s> modifier with regular expressions.


This Policy is part of the core L<Perl::Critic|Perl::Critic>


When asked what C<.> in a regular expression means, most people will
say that it matches any character, which isn't true.  It's actually
shorthand for C<[^\n]>.  Using the C<s> modifier makes C<.> act like
people expect it to.

    my $match = m< >xm;  # not ok
    my $match = m< >xms; # ok


This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.

=head1 NOTES

Be cautious about slapping modifier flags onto existing regular
expressions, as they can drastically alter their meaning.  See
L<> for an interesting
discussion on the effects of blindly modifying regular expression
