Perl::Critic::Policy::InputOutput::ProhibitOneArgSelect - Never write select($fh).
This Policy is part of the core Perl::Critic distribution.
Conway discourages the use of a raw select() when setting autoflushes. We'll extend that further by simply prohibiting the one-argument form of select() entirely; if you really need it you should know when/where/why that is. For performing autoflushes, Conway recommends the use of IO::Handle instead.
select((select($fh), $|=1)); # not ok
select $fh; # not ok
$fh->autoflush(); # ok
*STDOUT->autoflush(); # ok
This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.
