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,

        Your analogy only makes sense if i was trying to incorporate this into a script. In this case i literally though "i wonder what happens when i try to subtract a number from a string" and i found out just fine without strict or warnings. I'm just saying it's not necessary ALL THE TIME.
