    I'd use aliases instead of goto()s.
    package Carp::Scooby; require Carp; require Exporter; @EXPORT = qw( ruhroh zoiks jinkies ); *ruhroh = \&Carp::croak; *zoiks = \&Carp::carp; *jinkies = \&Carp::confess; 1;

    If you're feeling REALLY bizarre, you could indulge in a little argument-munging...
    sub ruhroh { @_ = map { my @words = split(/\s/); foreach my $word (@words) { $word =~ s/^([aeiou])/r$1/ and next; $word =~ s/^([AEIOU])/'R' . lc($1)/e and next; $word =~ s/^[a-z][^aeiou]?/r/ and next; $word =~ s/^[A-Z][^aeiou]?/R/; } join(' ', @words); } @_; push @_, ', Raggy!'; goto &croak; }
    Then, if you say
    ruhroh("And I'd have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you m +eddling kids");
    You'll get
    Rand Ri'd rave rotten raway rith rit, roo, rif rit reren't ror rou red +dling rids, Raggy! at test_ruhroh.pl line 5

    Update: A little testing made me change my scheme entirely...
