in thread IYHO, what do you consider good code?

I could agree with that, if you put a ..."and comment on exactly why you don't". However, note that I specificly didn't say that every line of code must comply with every stricture and warning.

    I find myself using strict less and less often but only in constrained circumstances. Small scripts, stub applications for CGI::Application, that sort of thing. If it fills half the screen its probably too long to write without strict. Maybe this just means a lot of my scripts are now less than half a page long, I'm not sure. I just know that it is occasionally easier to just throw caution to the wind. But then I am also very likely to make warnings fatal which for me is a stricter sort of strict - your code ends being *required* to operate on the data sanely or you fall over a fatal runtime error.

    Added text. I included an example of the sort of thing I'm thinking of. This could be written with strict but why bother? I also wrote Re: and another without strict or warnings. I added them on at the end just to keep the 'use strict'/warnings people happy.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -T BEGIN { $root = '/users/'; } use lib $root; use Camp; Camp::DataEntry ->new( TMPL_PATH => "$root/Tmpl/", PARAMS => { DBH_DSN => 'dbi:Pg:dbname=...', DBH_USER => '...', DBH_PASS => '...', DBH_OPT => { RaiseError => 1 } } ) ->run;
