in reply to Get your script warnings on the page it generates

Another handy module that takes care of this for you (TMTOWTDI) is CGI::Carp. I've used it quite effectively for debugging in the past. I also like merlyn's idea of having them emailed to you -- I do that with my 404 errors, which gets obnoxious when your friends find out about it ;-)

use CGI::Carp qw(FatalsToBrowser);

    But warnings aren't fatal...

    use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser); will send die/croak/confess messages to the browser, but not warn/carp/cluck messages.

      Good call, chipmunk. I presume you could use carpout() from CGI::Carp to redirect warn/carp/cluck calls to STDOUT.

      Additionally as of CGI::Carp v1.20:
      use CGI::Carp qw(fatalsToBrowser warningsToBrowser);
      With this, you can call
      to past warnings to the browser after the call.

      Being proven wrong is one of the best reasons to go RTFM, I guess. =]
