I feel I need to clarify my statement.

in thread On Commenting Out 'use strict;'
When I say "There are no trivial error messages", I mean exactly that: there are no trivial error messages that Perl gives you. I do not consider the error messages produced by or die "blah blah blah" constructs as I consider them a representation of the program logic created by a programmer who (supposedly) knows what (s)he is doing. I also specifically said that I do not talk about warnings - those are _not_ error messages, they are just that - warnings...
What I mean is when you write a script, and run it, and Perl gives you an error message, it means there is a problem that must be fixed or the script won't run (properly|at all). It's similar to writing a resume and not doing a spell check - if it contains misspellings, it will most likely be rejected outright. Unusual grammar constructs etc. can be overlooked - spelling errors are not. Same thing in coding - warnings can be overlooked, errors should not be.
Just my 2 cents...
An idea is not responsible for the people who believe in it...
