( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

1) ... strict pragma ...My time to make the conversion is limited and using some off the shelf tools that speed up the process would be a great help.

Hurry up and leave it alone :)

 use strict; itself confers no benefits; The benefits come from avoidance of the bad practices forbidden by  strict :)

That pretty much means convert one at a time by hand after you have learned the understanding of importance of knowing :) Speed kills

2. If possible ... I do not understand ...

That is a hint you shouldn't be refactoring anything programmatically.

There are a million nodes on perlmonks, and a readers digest version might be Modern Perl a loose description of how experienced and effective Perl 5 programmers work....You can learn this too.

Hurry up and bone up

3. Generally this task looks like a case of refactoring. I wonder, if any Perl IDE has some of required capabilities, or are there tools that can helpful.

I hope you have foot insurance :) happy hunting :) perlcritic, PPI/PPIx::XPath , PPIx::EditorTools,
App::EditorTools - Command line tool for Perl code refactoring
Code::CutNPaste - Find Duplicate Perl Code


So enjoy, test first, step0++
