You can do a simple concat. If you put any print statements in the sub they will be printed before the other error message (when the sub is called). This way you don't have to screw arround with signal handlers.
sub mysub { print STDERR "This is printed before the error message.\n"; return "\nThis is printed in the middle of the error message."; } open(TMPFILE,"<datafile.txt") || die "Cant open: $!" . mysub();
This is printed before the error message. Cant open: No such file or directory This is printed in the middle of the error message. at line 6.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
