Just this morning I was thinking about the need for "use strict" propaganda--reading enough posts here with stern remarks about "strict" has finally given me religion. :)

To this end, there needs to be a large, colorful, persuasive poster. I was imagining a WWII-style illustration after the fashion of the old "Buy War Bonds!" and "Keep 'Em Flying!" posters: several clean-living, cheerful, patriotic-looking souls (or, in this case, perhaps it'd have to be several decidedly unkempt-looking geeks who clearly haven't had much sleep) gazing confidently off into the distance, with "use strict" in very large letters floating in the sky above them.

So, find an illustrator willing to do all of that work for almost nothing :), and put the poster on the wall in the kid's room. Right near the crib. Start 'em out young, I say.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
