in thread use strict and warnings for newbes

To be honest I dont buy this skilled person argument. I do a lot of perl. Occassionally I leave it out of my code and then get bitten. Every time. When I have strange results its the first thing I check.

I personally would have no problem if the input boxes came preloaded with the code block AND a nice

use warnings; use strict;

Honestly I think I agree with the perldocs that it is a bug that perl does not have these set by default, as you can always negate them as in the infamous

no strict 'refs';

Even the old hands from what Ive seen in the modules work under strict and warnings, and probably wouldnt mind much at all if they were present.
