You are misreading my posts. Compeletely. I'm not against using strict or warnings - I use it in almost all my Perl code.

in thread Avoiding silly programming mistakes
I am against the many posts suggesting to use 'strict' or 'warnings' when such things have little to do with a problem someone posts. At least, if you cannot contribute much to the problem except reciting mantra, come up something original. There are 254 other best practices mentioned in Damians book. ;-)
