So this is probably the most useless module ever, but I thought it was kind of fun, because... I don't know. I like writing things that seem like English but are actually Perl, I guess.

Usage:

use Silly::Die; EXPR or die trying;
Where EXPR is, of course, an expression. For example:
open FILE, "foo" or die trying;
package Silly::Die; sub import { my $class = shift; my $caller = caller; no strict 'refs'; *{"${caller}::trying"} = \&{"${class}::trying"}; } sub trying { $! } 1;

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
