in reply to Useless/Interesting Error Messages

I'm guilty of that one. I often have something like this:
if ($x == 1) { # do something } elsif ($x == 2) { # do something else } else { confess "should't be here!" }

The idea is that I'm assuming that the subroutine got called with the right $x, but I leave that exception just in case.

    reminds me of some of my code :
    else { # we should extract the data to some temporary space # and migrate it as we can # for now we just fail gracefully... :( &ExitOnError( $WarningMes.="[$$] FATAL : can't migrate (missing featur +e!\n", $rows{JOBID}); }
    Yeah, some day I'll have to write that missing part ;)
