Meant to post here and never got around to it.

Errto isn't a real word in any language that I'm aware of. It's something that my brother and I made up when we were little and decided to invent our own little dialect of English to speak in. Errto (also spelled err-to) is kind of a generic particle. You can use it by itself or append it to some other word as a suffix. It doesn't mean anything in particular but adds emphasis to whatever comes before it.

[Lady_Aleena]: Discipulus, it is at 2 now, but with what I am thinking about, it could go to 3. However, only 1 is needed. The second and third are optional.
[shmem]: straight list or named parameters - that depends on whether (and how many) optional arguments you have
[Discipulus]: if so a plain list is ok, imho
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I already have the plugin installed, just not active.
[shmem]: if you have 1 optional argument, place that at the end of the list. If you have more, go for named parameters.
[Lady_Aleena]: 1 manditory, 2 optional.
[Discipulus]: my ($need,$opta,$optb ) = @_; .. if $opta..
