First let me say I much prefer developing in ruby that perl.  Ive been
developing in both for about three months (maintaining old perl
scripts and doing new stuff in ruby).

I am however not totaly sure why ruby does not have something like
perls 'use strict'.  It seems that use strict is safer and can help
you spot errors qucker.  I also have to confess that I prefer strong
predefined typing for the same reason but understand this may not be
as OO.

Peoples thoughts pleas,
Ben
