i must have been overanalyzing the problem from the start. i don't know why i didn't think of that.

i did attempt the try...catch thing with but it stopped me from doing a return within the block.

    This is the mechanism used by under the hood, more or less. While is a much prettier interface than checking $@ yourself, it has some drawbacks. Since the arguments to both try and catch are anonymous subs, return will return from those and not from the enclosing sub, as you've experienced. You'll have to set up a variable with the value you want to return and then do so outside of try/catch.
