Dear monks,

I am trying to understand how to use Exception::Class in a large-ish multimodule application. As part of the set of modules I made one package where I am planning to define all exceptions, i.e.:
package Bio::Phylo::Exceptions; use Exception::Class ( 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions', 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::BadNumber' => { isa => 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions' }, 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::BadString' => { isa => 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions' }, 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::BadFormat' => { isa => 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions' }, 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::ObjectMismatch' => { isa => 'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions' } ); 1;
So then, elsewhere in the modules, there might be OO getters and setters like this:
use Scalar::Util qw(looks_like_number); sub set_number { my ( $self, $number ) = @_; looks_like_number $number ? $self->{'NUMBER'} = $number : Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::BadNumber->throw(error => 'bad number'); }
And then the user has to go through a contortion like:
# try eval { $obj->set_number(sdf7897) }; # catch if (UNIVERSAL::isa($@,'Bio::Phylo::Exceptions::BadNumber')){ # do something }
Is that how it works? Or are the exceptions caught inside the object methods?

Pardon my ignorance, but I've never worried about this before, and I wish to learn.

Thank you!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
