Subject: RequireLocalizedPunctuationVars should allow $DATA
Download (untitled) / with headers

I've got this report: [Variables::RequireLocalizedPunctuationVars] Magic variable "$DATA" should be assigned as "local" at line 44, near '$DATA[ $id ] = {'. (Severity: 4) But AFAIK there is no magic variable $DATA or @DATA. I suppose this is false positive because of magic glob *DATA which should affect only file descriptors, and not scalar/array/hash.
