Well, "perl -w" is "enabling warnings", too.   I don't specifically care whether people use "use warnings", "-w" on the command line, or "-w" on the shebang line, as long as they do enable warnings when appropriate.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    "When appropriate" is key. strict is useful (or at least harmless) most of the time; warnings is harmful more often, and useful less often. My point is that warnings can be helpful for finding bugs, but can also force you to change working code for no good reason. Don't use warnings; unless you understand what it does.

    EDIT: Whee! Let's play the downvote game! If you want upvotes, it's important to follow Perlmonks dogma.

      I downvoted you -- not for your opinion on warnings, but for your crackpot "perlmonks dogma" quip.

[LanX]: memories....I missed my connection while chatting
[Discipulus]: in this case Corion we are speaking about software licensing: evry year or two we must rescan the whole ced to produce an excel report, while at every activation / disactivation we update a black box DB: i said that i a week i can produce the perl to..
[Discipulus]: rend out the xls IF i have access to the DB
[choroba]: LanX I miss working in a bank sometimes...
[Corion]: Discipulus: Ooof. Especially yearly things are things I like to automate instead of trying to remember how I did things last year...
[Corion]: And the second rule that I've learned is, that there is no one-off job, so writing a program for it pays off almost immediately. The third rule is to give all my programs numbers and have them reproduce that number in the name of their output files. :)
[Discipulus]: the true part is that also specification change between years.. but well our job is cheap but dont abuse of us.. ;=)
[LanX]: Choroba: do you miss chaos with ties? apply at the US government.. ;)
