( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Not to be picky or anything, but the advice to "use strict" is not mindless, nor is it not useful, so you've got two obvious strikes out of three (and an umpire call on the third).
In the grand scheme of things, "using strict" is mindless, boring, and compared to other things, utterly unimportant. It's on the list of "useful things to do", around place 3000, along with eating enough fruit and vegetables. "use strict" isn't the magic bullet some people think it is. Slapping "use strict" on a program doesn't make it better.
The point the OP was making should be obvious: there are indeed areas where a consensus exists on what's the best practice, and he wants to hear about others.
Whether or not there's consensus, the point is, the OP remained too vague on his circumstances to even determine what area he's talking about.
So you mean you never do anything?
No, it means I'm informed.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
