in thread Weird array printing/passing to subroutine problem

eduardo's thread explorations of consciousness and symbolic references...
might give you new insight into the 'strict' controversy

personally, i'd love to use strict but there are things
that i can't do with it on (i've tried)

i always try to use it for the first few lines of a
proggie but wind up turning it off to get the job done

i'd love to send my code to a perl clinic, so i could learn
how to do those things (and i try that here from time to time ;)
but i worry about treadding to close to the line on my NDA

Update:

after an email discussion with dave (i tried to include jjhorner but to no avail), i've
got to admit that i was wrong. my being limited to non-strict code was a limitation of my
own in how to use global variables

eduardo's node did however make me feel better about not knowing how to do it tho' ;)

thanks to dave fo going through a mighty heafty chunk of code, his responses are about
to spawn another thread

    I'd love to see a few examples of code that refuses to be 'strict' compatible.

    Thanks.

    I'd also like to see examples of things that you can't do with use strict switched on. The only thing I can think of is symbolic references and there are better ways to do most of the things that they are used for.

    Even if you must do things that break use strict what's to stop you making most of the code strict-clean and putting no strict around the problem areas - together with a comment explaining what is going on.
