  • Babies are useful because they tend to grow into functioning adults.

    It's just fine to write "baby perl" when you're getting started (or don't need the whole language because you're only doing small tasks) I think this is what Larry was getting at.

    It's not acceptable to have a 1-year-old's grammar at 20. You're supposed to *learn* as you go. Yes, babies should learn to use strict and warnings pretty early. But you know how kids are about taking advice from their parents: "You don't own me!" ;-)

    The important point is that you need to listen to your friends' advice (or your friends will leave.)
