Subject: perlcritcrc settings ignored
Date: Mon, 23 Jun 2008 08:44:04 -0400
To: <bug-Perl-Critic@rt.cpan.org>
From: "Smith, Mark E CTR USAF AFMC AEDC/ATA" <Mark.E.Smith@arnold.af.mil>
The values I set in perlcriticrc are ignored when I run perlcritic. For example # Perl Best Practices theme = pbp If I use -theme pbp on the command line the results are as expected. I don't know if this is only a perlcritic issue or also a module issue. This may result from old installed perl modules. This is on a Red Hat EL 5 machine that does not get updated often. perlcritic version: 1.087 perl version: 5.8.8 I did some investigation and found that perlcritic is read and the value placed in $CRITIC->{_config}, but if I use -theme pbp on the command line there are many more policies included.

This is interesting because the tests depend upon the theme coming from the file working in environments with any non-core policies installed. I'm going to have to think on how to debug this.
I'm stumped too. It might help if you sent over your .perlcriticrc file and the exact command lines you are using. Otherwise, it could be something as simple as a misplaced/misnamed .perlcriticrc file. But then you say it did pick up the values from your config file, so I'm not sure. -Jeff

All that is in the .perlcriticrc is theme = pbp Perhaps I should capture a dump of the hash that contains the settings and send that. I could do it with and without -theme pbp as a command line argument. Just let me know where in the code to do it and what to dump. Mark

Maybe try setting a breakpoint in Perl::Critic::Config::_load_policies() and see what is going on there. Be sure to step into _policy_is_thematic() and check out what is happening in there too.

I discovered that setting the theme to pbp in .perlcriticrc also requires that I set the severity level to 1. When I do this the behavior is as expected. Setting -theme pbp on the command line automatically sets the severity level to 1.
