Acme::Homer - Perl extension to put a little Homer in your code
use Acme::Homer; woohoo "Free beer alright!\n"; mmm "Mcribwhich\n" if $sandwhich eq 'Processed Pork'; open my $beer, $marge or doh "could not open $beer: $!"; ...
Use homerism's instead of the normal boring stuff :)
Use this instead of print
The only difference is that to print to a filehandle you must do it like so:
open my $list_fh, '<', 'list.txt' or die "Could not open list.txt: $!"; woohoo $list_fh, "whatever"; woohoo \*STDERR, "whatever";
If anyone knows of a way to make:
woohoo STDERR "whatever";
work exactly like
print STDERR "whatever";
Just let me know and I'll put your name down here as the "In your face Flanders" of the day!!
Use this instead of Carp::carp()
Use this instead of Carp::cluck()
Use this instead of Carp::croak()
Use this instead of Carp::confess()
All of the funtions described above are exported. Usually I don't do that but I figured: "hey, whats the point of getting uptight about your name space being polluted when you're using a Homer module"
If you think of any good Homerisms that would make good replacements for real funtion names lemme know!
This is really a "thanks for contributing" section but I figured why not give it a Homer type name:
