in reply to Re^5: Should I use carp/croak or warn/die
in thread Should I use carp/croak or warn/die

I liked some of your thoughts about "nice to haves" above and I'm always open to new approaches even though I've never met Ms Huffman. I propose some replacements/aliases–

carp ⇢ gripe
cluck ⇢ kvetch
croak ⇢ lament
confess ⇢ dirge
shortmess ⇢ demur
longmess ⇢ expostulate

Now we're getting somewhere. I am seeing an Acme:: future here; especially if it duplicates every single function in the core and in common usage from the more popular CPAN modules, with the entire thesaurus entry for each! :P ← You can't stop me!

    "...seeing an Acme:: future here..."

    Great expectations. I guess putting something like use Carp; sub lament { goto &croak } in a role should do the job (untested).

    Rather two additional generic functions which are synonymous to this range of things you like to do with Ms Milli. ;p
