Yes, it doesn't seem hard at all does it? (:

It includes a description of what was being attempted ("open", though I'd probably opt for metioning that "read" access is what was required -- though I can understand not wanting to confuse people into thinking it was a read operation that failed while keeping the message short), the input data to the operation (the name of the file), and the correct error code indicating why it failed ($! in this case).

Unfortunately, that still makes it above average in my experience. ):

[marioroy]: Perl is so much fun.
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus i recently started a Meditation about marioroy's MCE suit of modules, but is even better to see a practical question answered than responses to my meditation
[Discipulus]: good night mario!
[Tanktalus]: yeah, I saw you post about MCE - the concept looks really really cool. I wonder how well it plays with Coro :)
[Lady_Aleena]: Hi guys. I asked this earlier but got no answer. Why is this dying at -exec: my @music_times = qx(find ~/Music/Albums/ -type f -iname '*.mp3' -exec mp3info -p "%S\n" {} \;);
[Lady_Aleena]: The error find: missing argument to `-exec'
[Discipulus]: Tanktalus we will be glad to have you here more frequently, tho ;=)
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena oh I thought you found the error by adding -exec mp3info
[Tanktalus]: Discipulus: I should be working on an interview test right now. Well, I kind of am, but keep getting myself distracted :)
