Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::ProhibitParagraphEndComma - avoid comma at end of section


This policy is part of the "Perl::Critic::Pulp" add-on. It asks you not to end a POD paragraph with a comma.

    Some text,       # bad, meant to be a full-stop?
    Some more text.

Usually such a comma is meant to be a full-stop, or perhaps omitted at the end of a "SEE ALSO" list

    =head1 SEE ALSO
    L<Bar>,          # bad, meant to be omitted?

A paragraph is allowed to end with a comma when before an "=over" or a verbatim block, that being taken as introducing a quotation or example,

    For example,     # ok, introduce an example
    Or one of,       # ok, introduce an itemized list
    =item Foo


If you don't care about this you can disable "ProhibitParagraphEndComma" from your .perlcriticrc in the usual way (see "CONFIGURATION" in Perl::Critic),
