in thread turn off strict for production code

Except that doesn't actually work. It turns on the strict rules for the rest of the string you're evaluating, but that's it.
% perl use strict; $x = 1; print $x,$/; ^D Global symbol "$x" requires explicit package name at - line 2. Global symbol "$x" requires explicit package name at - line 3. Execution of - aborted due to compilation errors. % perl eval 'use strict' if 1; $x = 1; print $x,$/; ^D 1
By convention, the all-lowercase modules like strict, warnings, if, and utf8 are pragma declarations. They change the rules of Perl as a language. You should expect that they work through magic, and they produce results which are magical. Typically, they are not just "build up a symbol table and call import()" like all the other modules.
