in reply to scope of "use strict"? (needed: "superstrict")

Maybe the easiest solution is to copy the modules to an area where you can edit them, then use something like

find . -name \*\.pm -exec perl -i -ne 'if (/^package/) {print $_ . "use strict\n;"} else  {print}' {} \;

which searches for .pm files in the current directory and down (and which is where you copied them), looking for the 'package XXX;' lines and replacing them with

package Foo; use strict;

It assumes that the 'package Foo;' lines have no leading spaces - adjust if necessary...

then you can run code that loads the modules and see what pops out, making sure to run the code as

perl -I<path to root of strict versions> nameOfScript.pl

good luck!
