    You might have 1.26 installed somewhere, but I believe Perl is finding and using an older version. The longmess_real and shortmess_real subs were purged a few years ago, in the 1.1x series IIRC.

    Basically the way they were defined/used was that the (long|short)mess_real functions were defined inside Carp/, and were called from itself. In recent versions Carp/ is not much more than an empty file, and doesn't call (long|short)mess_real at all.

    So what I'm assuming is that Perl is finding an old version of (which calls longmess_real) but a new version of Carp/ (which does not define longmess_real).

    perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
      Yep, you are right. I change my BEGIN block to use unshift to make my custom libs load first.
      BEGIN { unshift @INC, "/home/neil/perl5/lib/perl5" }

        use lib '/it/unshifts/for/you';
