( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Update: D'oh! I wonder why "perldoc -f Fatal" didn't come up with anything :) Yes, that's a joke, but I did add the -f in there when I tried it! How embarrassing that such a useful module is part of the standard distribution and I didn't know that. Sigh... Just focus on the Perl 6 comments, will ya? :)

Browsing through the standard Pel modules, I came across this little number. Considering how much we push strict and warnings, wouldn't it be a good idea to add this module to the list?

It kind of sounds like you're saying that Fatal is part of the standard distribution, but I don't think you meant that. I suppose the reason it's not mentioned more often is because many would likely balk at installing a module to check for something that they do anyway.

I am aware that this has been brought up in relation to Perl 6. Specifically, it sounds like Perl 6 might have a use strict 'system'; pragma which would be equivalent to the following:

use Fatal qw/:void open close/;

The above snippet will throw an exception if you try to open or close a filehandle without explicitly checking the return type. I'd like to see that, but I have no idea whether or not it will actually be implemented.
