=head1 NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::BuiltinFunctions::ProhibitBooleanGrep - Use C<List::MoreUtils::any> instead of C<grep> in boolean context.


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


Using C<grep> in boolean context is a common idiom for checking if any
elements in a list match a condition.  This works because boolean
context is a subset of scalar context, and grep returns the number of
matches in scalar context.  A non-zero number of matches means a

But consider the case of a long array where the first element is a
match.  Boolean C<grep> still checks all of the rest of the elements
needlessly.  Instead, a better solution is to use the C<any> function
from L<List::MoreUtils|List::MoreUtils>, which short-circuits after
the first successful match to save time.


This Policy is not configurable except for the standard options.

=head1 CAVEATS

The algorithm for detecting boolean context takes a LOT of shortcuts.
There are lots of known false negatives.  But, I was conservative in
writing this, so I hope there are no false positives.
