in reply to Useless/Interesting Error Messages

I was once working with an module which under certain conditions (which I had a very hard time narrowing down, BTW), would die with the message "12". Thats it, no further information... Just "12", and the program was dead. No where in the documentation did it explain what "12" meant. It did not use a warn, or a croak, or confess, just "12". No way to find where it happened, or why, just the number 12. Boy did I throw that module away in a hurry.
