I think this isn't the best advice. Everybody, and especially beginners,
should "use strict; use warnings;" and declare variables. Doing so makes
it much, much easier to catch typos and other small mistakes - which is
often what trips up beginners.

The only exception I can think of is quick and dirty one-liners.

  Best regards,
