Defined in:

Overview

This cop looks for uses of global variables. It does not report offenses for built-in global variables. Built-in global variables are allowed by default. Additionally users can allow additional variables via the AllowedVariables option.

Note that backreferences like $1, $2, etc are not global variables.

Examples:

# bad
$foo = 2
bar = $foo + 5

# good
FOO = 2
foo = 2
$stdin.read
