Cody Pendant has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I was just going over a script which uses the deprecated, non-OO form of getting the variables from, the one where you do CGI:ReadParse() and it puts everything into a hash called %in.

Leaving aside the "stop doing it that way" answers, how do I make my script valid using strict if it uses this hash -- it's not my hash, after all.
