in reply to Strict, strings and subroutines

Well the error message says it all... however if you know what you're doing (and chances are you can do differently, e.g. through hashes or proper sub references, just do a Super Search):

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; sub foobar { print "Here I am!\n"; } my $var = 'bar'; no strict "refs"; &{'foo'.$var};

You can lexically enable and disable strict as you need, always bearing in mind that you must know what you're doing...
