( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Yep. It's just a mistake. A dumb one too, since it was so easy to test. :-(

Chalk it up to wishful thinking on my part. Or maybe just too much blind faith in the compiler: "It's something that would be easy to test at compile-time, ergo it must be tested at compile-time".

Still, at least it's not the worst mistake I made in PBP. ;-)

PS: I stand by the overall recommendation though. Error messages that point users to the right place are definitely worth the (tiny) overhead of passing named args in a hash.

    [virtualsue]: I have made a post for the first time in ... years
    [marto]: hey virtualsue!
    Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
    [virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
    [ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
    virtualsue waves back
    [Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
    [Corion]: I think I saw virtualsue more recently in person than online :-D
    [virtualsue]: It's true that there was a bigger gap between the 2 yr old post and the one before it
    [ambrus]: yes, I probably just didn't see you two years ago, because I'm not in perlmonks much
