carp is the least "sexy" perl function for people who are not native (or assimilated) english speakers. It's kind of weird but I need to understand the "verb" to use it (and periodically I look at the meaning of carp in some online dictionnary). Result: yes I croak sometimes, but do not carp...
that could be a pool question, no?
what is the most unused perl function? and that will be carp ;)

a carp is a silent fish...what kind of mnemonics is that for LOUD error printing, I wonder...
