Correct namespace of module I wrote

izut has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I wrote a module that traps $SIG{__DIE__} and $SIG{__WARN__} and send an email using Mail::Mailer. I called it Carp::Mailer, but I'm not sure how name it.

Is Carp::Mailer ok, or does anybody has a best name?

    How is this related to Carp? Other than trapping signals, does it otherwise improve upon the existing Carp::Notify? Could it be done as a patch to Carp::Notify or should it be an extension, e.g. Carp::Notify::Signals?

      Well, I checked Carp::Notify but it modifies or add other features to Carp. Actually I don't know what 'Carp' stands for.

      The module traps $SIG{__DIE__} and $SIG{__WARN__} and sends an email to someone. It works with Carp and raw die and warn messages.

      If its usage dos not apply in Carp namespace, could you suggest another?

    Is it a mailer that carps? (Mailer::Carp) Or is it a carper that mails? (Carp::Mailer)

    If it's primary objective is to be a mailer, and that mailer is different from other mailers in that it carps (complains) if there's trouble, I would think Mailer::Carp is more appropriate.

    If it's a carper (complainer) that mails its complaint, it would be more appropriately named Carp::Mailer.


      It is a module will send an email to someone when it complains about a die and warn. It will send an email containing complete stack when using Carp. I think it really should be named Carp::Mailer, then.

      Thank you all.
