There was an excellent talk by Larry Wall on the perl6 error message design. I think it was in Santa Clara and it was a Perl Conference, but haven't found a transcript yet. It was about 9 years ago.

Anyone have a link?

There's a youtube of a 2008 Google talk at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzIWdJVP-wo&list=PLRuESFRW2F...

He talks a bit about error messages. I found that by searching for `message` in the transcript generated by selecting the 'Open transcript" menu option of the ... button.
