in reply to RFC: Tutorial: use strict; now what!?

Bit late but I came across this reply to a post moaning about having to use strict and my which sort of drives it home:
But when respiratory system of your mom will be under your code, you’ll think hundred times to check that every variable is declared instead of appearing from nowhere.

    I appreciate your support but please excuse me if I say that the purpose of this tutorial will not be to emphasize to the newcomer the importance of strictures. This has been done better elsewhere and better than I would presume to attempt.

    Rather, I assume that the reader has already been lectured, already taken the advice; and now is dismayed to find the program appears to have taken a step backwards. This is the context in which I believe runrig made his offhand suggestion. (For any misunderstanding I take all responsibility.)

    The newcomer now needs to know what to do next and, perhaps, needs to see concretely how the apparent burden of strictures can be employed as a blessing.

    I'm working on it.

      Hence the "now what!?" in the title. Got it.
