in reply to Paradigm Shift - Don't use strict

I feel you, man, er, as it were.

My philosophy is that there are alot of areas where my own expertise is well below that of others; leveraging those others' skills effectively permits me to focus on my own goals in the short term (which pays the bills). In the long term, osmosis is unavoidable anyway.

The upshot (for me), is that (like XS and many other facilities that come with perl) are black box tools which do what I need for very little cost, and one day (when a get a round TUIT), perhaps I'll dissect them to understand more.

Why rush the inevitable?
