Yea the same thing I did by removing the strict. When you look at webmin codes itself, strict is not use anywhere do I guess that is it.

It’s not the API that is doing that, it’s Perl’s interpretation of the code (perhaps that’s self-evident).  I have limited Perl knowledge and will defer to others on this.  However, I experienced the same thing when developing my own custom module.  I simply removed the “strict” command and moved on.


Jamie will doubtless be able to explain this better.

I have noticed that, the webmin API doesnt support the use of strict and warning. Because any time I tried using them, I get so many "Global ...." errors which are related to the API. Why isn't the API using strict?
