Hi

I chose a very modest goal -- implementing "strict" pragma because "use strict" and "use warnings" are two pragmas which do improve maintainability of Perl scripts. Other new staff mostly don't.

You can be strict/warnings compliant and not benefit

Being in a hurry to automate strict/warnings compliance hints that you just might be missing the point of strict/warnings

The slideshow I linked is very good, its called Program Repair Shop , its about refactoring/strict/warnings

So this is an implicit attempt to push me into "overachiever mode".

No, Its an explicit invitation to answer question #2 yourself,

Chapter 9. Managing Real Programs, Modules, Organizing Code With Modules

I'm boning up right now

Its hard being an archeologist
