[Israel.pm] errors and warnings in Perl

In my classes I frequently notice that people don't understand the
error messages or warnings perl gives them. I suggest to

use diagnostics;

but in many cases this is not clear either.

So I decided to start patching the diagnostics. We cannot change
the actual error messages as there is production code out there
relying on the actual messages.

So if any of you have a favorite non-clear error message in perl, it
would be great sharing them with me now so I can send patches and
get if fixed in 5.10
