in reply to Perlmonk's "best pratices" in the real world
According to to strict or not to strict, you're not alone, but it
seems that the majority of the Monastery is against your view.
On a personal note, I started using strict and warnings
long before joining the Monastery, and I haven't yet found a
reason to do differently.
It is a mantra and it looks like that, but there are a few
very good reasons for keeping chanting it. Strict and warnings
are good help when you write programs, and they are invaluable when
you need to find a bug.
