You mean there's a point at which one's done programming? Gee, and I always thought the client would call again tomorrow asking for something else to be included! <snicker>

Seriously, I have found that one of the main reasons to use -w is not for immediate benefit as chromatic's post might suggest, but it keeps you from having to figure out issues later on when you come back to maintain the code. Its a win-win situation: safer now, and better later...

    You mean there's a point at which one's done programming?

    Yes, when I've implemented all of the features I want to implement and the code generates no warnings or errors.

    (That's why I like the Jellybean screenshots up on my page.)

    If I'm getting uninitialized value warnings, that's a sign that some part of my logic is broken, and there's the potential that something really bad is lurking beneath the surface.

    Maybe that's the Chthonic school of programming -- it is uninitialized in here. You may be eaten by a grue.
