in thread Should I use carp/croak or warn/die

Though I'm not sure if @CARP_NOT could be used for this ...
How could it?

I mean @CARP_NOT is a package variable that is (or so I suppose) evaluated at compile-time.

How could that be used to implement the run-time feature of reporting the the first caller of a different package?

I don't really know to be honest, you could be right, but my working hypothesis here is that you're simply blah-blahing here.

So please enlighten us...

    I wouldn't ask if I knew.

    nope that's obvious from the docs and from a simple test.

    > you're simply blah-blahing here.

    Look who's talking...

    Anyway carp() seems to already do by default what I wanted. \o/

    It doesn't report from the caller function but the caller package.

    use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; TEST::first(); # <- line 6 #push @main::CARP_NOT, qw(TEST); # uncomment to see dynamic behaviour #TEST::first(); package TEST; use Carp; sub first { second(); } sub second { carp "some warning"; }

    some warning at d:/Users/RolfLangsdorf/pm/ line 6.
