Carp-Clan (5.3) *****

Before I discovered this module, I would play silly games with “local $Carp::CarpLevel = $Carp::CarpLevel + 1” sprinkled all over the place. Not only was that annoying, it also hatefully causes Carp to emit verbose messages. Now I just use Carp::Clan and things work as I meant them to.

Of course, that’s not the module’s only use – but that alone makes the module worthwhile to use everywhere, even if you don’t have a “clan” of modules.

My only question is: why is this not part of the core? Why indeed doesn’t Carp itself work that way?
