( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
print() is generally considered one of those functions that "Just Works". adding "or die" to print is kinda ... dumb.

Of course, if you absolutely had to test print's success or failure, you could

use Fatal qw( print );

As for Devel::Cover ... I shoot for 90%+ coverage. There are several good conversations on D::C and why attempting to achieve 100% is ... well ... dumb. :-)


  • In general, if you think something isn't in Perl, try it out, because it usually is. :-)
