in thread Perl Programmers Don't Die...

:-)

In all of my cgi scripts I use a little custom die subroutine so none of them just die, they die nicely.

sub dienice { print "Content-type: text/html\n\n" unless $header_printed; $header_printed = 1; my(@msg) = @_; print "<h2>Attention:</h2>\n"; print join("<br>\n",@msg); exit; }

      I suppose that I should clarify that this isn't for when my scripts die of natural causes, but when I kill them myself, i.e.:
      open ... or &dienice("Can't open: $!");
      Or for viewing troubleshooting data:
      &dienice(@troubleshooting_data);
      Perhaps I should rename the sub killnice, or maybe KillingMeSoftly?
