Hello Dave,

If you're using a web application, I recommend CGI::Carp, because you
can write an personalized routine to handle application errors. I my
case, when my scripts return an error (like an die, or any other
fail), instead my users view "Internal Server Error" (from Apache),
they see my error routine build with Carp and CGI ... It's very

best regards,
