in thread 'use strict' is not Perl

Since you're not the first to mention that title to me, I guess I should explain.

I gave a lot of thought to the title and wondered if what I was naming it was appropriate. I finally decided that it was for a couple of reasons. The first is simple. 'use strict' isn't just Perl. It's a good programming concept that applies everywhere. It's only in Perl that we happen to use the words 'use strict' to describe and implement it.

The second reason was a bit more sneaky. If I may be less than humble for a moment, I have to say that I felt like I was presenting some worthwhile material. Since I wanted monks to read it, I deliberately chose a provocative title. Of course, you see that a lot in my posts (Death to dot star!, use CGI or die;, etc). While I didn't want to deliberately sow confusion, I felt it was better to try to get people to read this -- and hopefully take it to heart.
