This pragma enforces coding standards and promotes best-practices by
running your file through Perl::Critic before every execution. In a
production system, this usually isn't feasible because it adds a lot of
overhead at start-up. If you have a separate development environment, you
can effectively bypass the 'criticism' pragma by not installing
Perl::Critic in the production environment. If Perl::Critic can't be
loaded, then 'criticism' just fails silently.
Alternatively, the 'perlcritic' command-line (which is distributed with
Perl::Critic) can be used to analyze your files on-demand and has some
additional configuration features. And Test::Perl::Critic provides a nice
interface for analyzing files during the build process.
If you'd like to try Perl::Critic without installing anything, there is a
web-service available at the manpage. The web-service
does not yet support all the configuration features that are available in
the native Perl::Critic API, but it should give you a good idea of what it
does. You can also invoke the perlcritic web-service from the command line
by doing an HTTP-post, such as one of these:
