in thread Deprecated use of $SIG{__DIE__} is useful

Overriding die catches calls to die('Error'), but it doesn't catch errors such as undefined values being thrown because I've used strict.

Neither does $SIG{__DIE__}. That would be $SIG{__WARN__}.

    I'm not sure what he meant by throwing undefined values, but that which strict produces is caught by $SIG{__DIE__}, not $SIG{__WARN__}.

      Yeah, I guess that could go either way, since undefined variables are not something that would be caught by strict.
