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.

      i found out just fine without strict or warnings
      Yes, asking at PerlMonks is a frequent alternative to using strict and warnings.
