Perl::Critic can and should be used to greatly improve the quality of any Perl code. The only disadvantage of perl::Critic is that it provides no history. I will show how .SE (the Swedish country code top level domain registry) uses Perl::Critic to improve code quality and how we mitigated Perl::Critic's disadvantage.
Bonus: How to convince management to fund a Perl::Critic evaluation and improvement of your codebase.
