in reply to Why use strict is good, and barewords are bad

oct is a reserved word. I notice that the following works fine, however:

@months = qw/jan,feb,mar,apr,may,jun,jul,aug,sep,oct,nov,dec/;
I always use this format or enclose the text inside quote marks.

    Of course it does. You're quoting a single word (which happens to have 47 chars :-)

    @months is ending up with one single element O:-)

    You're not running this with warnings enabled, I'm sure.

    And qw is an addition from somewhere in Perl5's history.
