  Comment: I don't get it (Score 1) on 2010.04.08 4:52

Sorry, if the following text sounds a bit rude ;-) I don't really know what the big problem is. At the beginning you wrote you test it in a way beginners would do, meaning you don't want the modules to cause problems to beginners. Enabling use strict and use warnings is definatly the way to go in more than 99% of cases. Even Perl6 enables it per default. Nearly every module forces you to something and these two things shouldn't really be a problen in most cases. Even low level programming languages (meaning compilers) complain about a lot of things if you don'ttry to get around them. If you really want to leave the best practice path, why not set no strict/warnings? It's not a really big problem and with a good editor/ide this can be automated. I agree that both ways have their advantages and disadventages, but it doesn't seem like a big deal to me, but that's just my opinion.

I guess it would be better, if every module used Modern::Perl, so it is more visible. I also had to find this statement first. Will create some Dancer and Modern::Perl packages for linux distros and pkgsrc.

From Dancer::Cookbook "Note that you don't need to use the strict and warnings pragma, they are already loaded by Dancer." So it saves space, like Modern::Perl, which would be a bonus for me. To all users of Perl on Windows. Maybe it works with the latest (beta/RC) version of strawberry perl. At least here it works. This competition is a great idea! I've never ever used one of these before I read about the competition. The reason is that nearly nobody was talking about this, so it's great someone does.
