CGI-GuruMeditation (0.05) **

This doesn't seem to offer anything which CGI::Carp doesn't already do. All it adds is a builtin HTML error screen (with excessively verbosely written CSS) that might be seen as a little more pleasing than what CGI::Carp spits out. Or might not; it includes Javascript to blink the error message, true to the module's name. And it contains an incantation which attempts to extract an excerpt of the source location where the error was thrown. Extraction relies on $0 so the code will show the wrong thing if the error was thrown inside a module rather than the main CGI script. The author includes his very own HTML-escaping function, whimsically nested into the module's main function.

I admit it's kind of fun; but that's this thing's only real saving grace.
