=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::PolicyListing - Display minimal information about Policies.


This is a helper class that formats a set of Policy objects for
pretty-printing.  There are no user-serviceable parts here.


This is considered to be a non-public class.  Its interface is subject
to change without notice.



=item C<< new( -policies => \@POLICY_OBJECTS ) >>

Returns a reference to a new C<Perl::Critic::PolicyListing> object.


=head1 METHODS


=item to_string()

Returns a string representation of this C<PolicyListing>.  See
L<"OVERLOADS"> for more information.



When a L<Perl::Critic::PolicyListing|Perl::Critic::PolicyListing> is
evaluated in string context, it produces a one-line summary of the
default severity, policy name, and default themes for each
L<Perl::Critic::Policy|Perl::Critic::Policy> object that was given to
the constructor of this C<PolicyListing>.
