I agree with the origins; I just wish that Perl had rolled a no strict; into -e rather than providing no constraint on variables in proper scripts.

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    The "original sin" was backwards compatibility to Perl 4, which had no my or strict .

    Back in the time piggybacking private variables had huge advantages, but it led to paradoxes, complexity and mounting technical debt.
