There are good reasons for disabling certain kinds of strictures, But if you were wise enough to use strict in the first place, then it doesn't make sense to disable it completely. By default, any no strict statement will violate this policy. However, you can configure this Policy to allow certain types of strictures to be disabled (See CONFIGURATION). A bare no strict statement will always raise a violation.


The permitted strictures can be configured via the allow option. The value is a list of whitespace-delimited stricture types that you want to permit. These can be vars, subs and/or refs. An example of this customization:

  allow = vars subs refs
