in reply to When should you not use strict and warnings?

When the entire script fits on one line? ;)

% cat nums 1 2 3 4 % perl -nE '$sum += $_; END { say $sum }' nums 10

    Well, adding -Mstrict and qualifying every variable with my may be a little much for a one-liner. But adding a single -w? Consider:

    2:05 >type nums.txt 1 2 3 4 2:05 >perl -nE "$sum += $_; END { say $sum }" nums.txt 10 2:06 >perl -nwE "$sum += $_; END { say $sum }" nums.txt 10 2:06 >perl -nE "$sum += $_; END { say $sun }" nums.txt 2:06 >perl -nwE "$sum += $_; END { say $sun }" nums.txt Name "main::sum" used only once: possible typo at -e line 1. Name "main::sun" used only once: possible typo at -e line 1. Use of uninitialized value $sun in say at -e line 1, <> line 4. 2:06 >

    That’s a lot of potential help for the cost of just one extra character on the command line. :-)
