in reply to Style guide for error messages?

In addition to your stuff:
  • Always provide necessary variables that may be interesting in the context of the error.
    die("Could not open file $file: $!\n");
  • Always put delimiters around the variables, so that you don't get tricked by whitespace, weird chars, line feeds, etc.
    die("Could not open file ($file): ($!)\n");
