in reply to strict isn't everything

Typically, monks will warn new programmers that they must use strict. This pragma is useful, but if you just don't understand programming, it's a false sense of security.
Pragmas are there for programmers. Furthermore, strict is there to help a programmer from being plagued by the most common of perl pitfalls, related to the language. If you type perldoc strict, you'll see there is no mention of security. I wish there was a use strict 'logic'. There is no substitute for: coherent thought, experience, and most importantly discipline.
