=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Variables::ProhibitReusedNames - Do not reuse a variable name in a lexical scope


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


It's really hard on future maintenance programmers if you reuse a
variable name in a lexical scope. The programmer is at risk of
confusing which variable is which. And, worse, the programmer could
accidentally remove the inner declaration, thus silently changing the
meaning of the inner code to use the outer variable.

    my $x = 1;
    for my $i (0 .. 10) {
        my $x = $i+1;  # not OK, "$x" reused

With C<use warnings> in effect, Perl will warn you if you reuse a
variable name at the same scope level but not within nested scopes.  Like so:

    % perl -we 'my $x; my $x'
    "my" variable $x masks earlier declaration in same scope at -e line 1.

This policy takes that warning to a stricter level.

=head1 CAVEATS

=head2 Crossing subroutines

This policy looks across subroutine boundaries.  So, the following may
be a false positive for you:

    sub make_accessor {
        my ($self, $fieldname) = @_;
        return sub {
            my ($self) = @_;  # false positive, $self declared as reused
            return $self->{$fieldname};

This is intentional, though, because it catches bugs like this:

    my $debug_mode = 0;
    sub set_debug {
        my $debug_mode = 1;  # accidental redeclaration

I've done this myself several times -- it's a strong habit to put that
"my" in front of variables at the start of subroutines.

=head2 Performance

The current implementation walks the tree over and over.  For a big
file, this can be a huge time sink.  I'm considering rewriting to
search the document just once for variable declarations and cache the
tree walking on that single analysis.


This policy has a single option, C<allow>, which is a list of names to
never count as duplicates.  It defaults to containing C<$self> and
C<$class>.  You add to this by adding something like this to your

    allow = $self $class @blah

=head1 AUTHOR

Chris Dolan <>

This policy is inspired by
L<>.  Java does not allow
you to reuse variable names declared in outer scopes, which I think is
a nice feature.
