in reply to Can I force strictness on included files?

I'm not quite sure what do you mean by that.
From what I understand I guess you just need to include 'use strict' in the file you wish to call. Like this:
use strict; #File name: mydata.pl my $res = {# reference variable value..etc};
Then call it with:
my $another_var = do 'mydata.pl';
Please see tlm's answer to my posting in the same breath with your question.

Edward

    Sure, but I want to avoid having to do this.

    I like to update things in only one place, so instead of specifying use strict; in my about one hundred data files (I think I am actually in a similar situation than you describe), I would rather do that in the one place where all these other files are included in the main module.
