in reply to best way to learn use strict

The best way to learn how to use strict is to throw it at the top of some of your code (along with use warnings and maybe even use diagnostics) and then see what happens.

If the code is long enough and bad enough, you will learn alot figuring out why you're getting all those errors. :-)
