reports errors from a group of modules

'Carp::Clan' reports errors from the perspective of the caller of a "clan" of modules, similar to "" itself. But instead of giving it a number of levels to skip on the calling stack, you give it a pattern to characterize the package names of the "clan" of modules which will never be blamed for any error. So these modules stick together like a "clan"; any error will be blamed on the "outsider" script or modules not belonging to the "clan".
