Re: use v5.36; use warnings;
Message ID:
I like enabling use warnings when you say "use vX", but I also think
it needs to be easy to shut them off even when you want all the other
"use vX" features-- there's an old Randal Schwartz recommendation to
always disable warnings in production code, because new ones may pop
up on perl upgrade.
