If you use warnings;, you are warned that "test" isn't numeric, which makes it more obvious what's going on.

    The implication that use warnings; was not present to start with is somewhat disturbing. Can one infer that use strict; is also not a habit?

      this was in my "" when ever i need to test a theory or to just see what happens (the latter in this case) i use this and i don't need to use strict and warnings to test theorys

        Analogy: “I wear a lifejacket when I fish professionally. But I was only fishing recreationally, so I didn’t need one.” (Because it doesn’t matter if I drown when I’m only having fun?)

        strict and warnings are not there to cramp your style; they’re there to help you and save you time by alerting you to common mistakes you might otherwise overlook.

        Required reading: The strictures, according to Seuss.

        Hope that helps,
