Does anybody know an elegant, simple (might be asking too much there)
way to trap/suppress/avoid this kind of ugly message when I call
exit or die from within BEGIN?
Usage: turbo_fax file1 [file2 . . .]
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./in_place line 19.
In some cases, I can set a flag in BEGIN and have "$fatal and die"
as the first line of the program body, but if I'm using -n/-p, I
need to get a line of input before dying, which ruins that approach.
There should be a way . . . What it is? 8-}
P.S. Going for a personal daily-posting record today! If I don't shutup,
as the list-owner I'll have to rebuke myself!
