in thread Why isn't C<use strict> the default?

"...people that start coding in perl aren't even going to know that 'use strict' exists, and will end up creating sloppy code"

This seems to be true for much of the code I end up inheriting. Whenever I am given code, two tasks are created:

  1. Add use strict;
  2. Run perltidy, specifically "perltidy -nolq -pt=0 -bbb -bl"
