in thread RFC: Tutorial: use strict; now what!?

I appreciate your support but please excuse me if I say that the purpose of this tutorial will not be to emphasize to the newcomer the importance of strictures. This has been done better elsewhere and better than I would presume to attempt.

Rather, I assume that the reader has already been lectured, already taken the advice; and now is dismayed to find the program appears to have taken a step backwards. This is the context in which I believe runrig made his offhand suggestion. (For any misunderstanding I take all responsibility.)

The newcomer now needs to know what to do next and, perhaps, needs to see concretely how the apparent burden of strictures can be employed as a blessing.

I'm working on it.
