NAME

strict - Perl pragma to restrict unsafe constructs


SYNOPSIS

    use strict;

    use strict "vars";
    use strict "refs";
    use strict "subs";

    use strict;
    no strict "vars";


DESCRIPTION

If no import list is supplied, all possible restrictions are assumed. (This is the safest mode to operate in, but is sometimes too strict for casual programming.) Currently, there are three possible things to be strict about: ``subs'', ``vars'', and ``refs''.

strict refs

This generates a runtime error if you use symbolic references (see the perlref manpage).

    use strict 'refs';
    $ref = \$foo;
    print $$ref;        # ok
    $ref = "foo";
    print $$ref;        # runtime error; normally ok
strict vars

This generates a compile-time error if you access a variable that wasn't declared via use vars, localized via my() or wasn't fully qualified. Because this is to avoid variable suicide problems and subtle dynamic scoping issues, a merely local() variable isn't good enough. See my and local.

    use strict 'vars';
    $X::foo = 1;         # ok, fully qualified
    my $foo = 10;        # ok, my() var
    local $foo = 9;      # blows up

    package Cinna;
    use vars qw/ $bar /;        # Declares $bar in current package
    $bar = 'HgS';               # ok, global declared via pragma

The local() generated a compile-time error because you just touched a global name without fully qualifying it.

strict subs

This disables the poetry optimization, generating a compile-time error if you try to use a bareword identifier that's not a subroutine, unless it appears in curly braces or on the left hand side of the ``=>'' symbol.

    use strict 'subs';
    $SIG{PIPE} = Plumber;       # blows up
    $SIG{PIPE} = "Plumber";     # just fine: bareword in curlies always ok
    $SIG{PIPE} = \&Plumber;     # preferred form

DISCLAIMER

We are painfully aware that these documents may contain incorrect links and misformatted HTML. Such bugs lie in the automatic translation process that automatically created the hundreds and hundreds of separate documents that you find here. Please do not report link or formatting bugs, because we cannot fix per-document problems. The only bug reports that will help us are those that supply working patches to the installhtml or pod2html programs, or to the Pod::HTML module itself, for which I and the entire Perl community will shower you with thanks and praises.

If rather than formatting bugs, you encounter substantive content errors in these documents, such as mistakes in the explanations or code, please use the perlbug utility included with the Perl distribution.
