D'oh - Debug module

SYNOPSIS

        #!/usr/bin/perl -w
        use D'oh;
        D'oh::stderr();
        D'oh::stderr('/tmp/stderr');

        #print date and script name/pid to STDERR
        D'oh::date();

        #redirect STDOUT        
        D'oh::stdout();
        D'oh::stdout('/tmp/stdout');
        D'oh::date('STDOUT');

        print "hellloooooo\n";
        die "world";

        __END__

        tail /tmp/stdout
        #===== myscript [1743]: Mon Feb  2 11:27:41 1998 =====#
        hellloooooo

        tail /tmp/stderr
        #===== myscript [1743]: Wed Apr  1 11:24:39 1998 =====#
        # world.

DESCRIPTION

The module, when used, prints all STDERR (or STDOUT) to a given file, which is by default /tmp/D'oh.

BUGS

Also, multiple scripts can write simultaneously to the same error file, making it really messy. If you don't like this, then select different files for each script or whatever.

Mac OS

Mac OS does not like to have multiple opens to the same file. Use different files. The default directory for the files is $ENV{TMPDIR} in MacPerl, not /tmp.
