Not so fast. What if beginner is facing some lazily written module/code which fails with -w? To avoid frustration, we should suggest that:
  1. -w is lazy, version-independent way to get warnings
  2. if it fails, and they are using perl above 5.6.0, then they should use warnings after failing module was used.

    Point 2 can be hidden in link, named "if -w fails", so only point 1 will be visible.

    I am sure somebody can write it in better english. : )

    Just my $0.02.

    I think we are going to another extreme: from not enough links for newbies, to spending too much time on dicussion about links for newbies....

    Let them to do some homework, to have some fun, too.

To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.
