in reply to Use strict warnings and diagnostics

How about adding an explanation about how the diagnostics pragma works? It simply looks up error messages in perldiag and includes the descriptions in the error output.

I think it will be useful for Perl programmers to know that there is a whole document that lists all of Perl's error messages (not to mention a few error messages from other sources), and that error messages can be looked up there when one doesn't use diagnostics.
