Actually, IIRC, for quite a while, 5.9.x *had* err, and it was culled not to long before 5.10 came out due to some backwards compatability issues noone seemed to be able to resolve.

    I'm actually quite happy that the 5.8.x series is out of maint now. Maintaining those patches was quite a lot of work.

    Note that those patches still add the err keyword to perl.

    The disadvantage of those patches over the proposal of a module/function, is that it is inside the perl binary, and all has to be recompiled from scratch.


    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
