Why are you reading this? No one actually reads POD. You must be a loser. If you have to rely on the documentation to figure out what something does, you're probably one of those wimps who uses strict.

This was inspired by an offhand joke by merlyn ( at a Damian Conway talk. He is, however, not responsible for this and shouldn't be held liable if you're a bonehead.


August 1, 2001: Currently, this program will not work if any other module is loaded that uses strict. I could have tried to code around that by using a bunch of evals or something, but so what? It's a joke.
