Can someone point me in the right direction on error handling with packages? I have some die statements in a custom package, in case certain files don't exist, but it's preventing the rest of my script from executing when the die is encountered. Ideally, I would like to build in an error checking mechanism that if the package dies, I can catch this within the script and perform some action based on it. I thought something like this would work:
use strict; user warnings; use VPNUser qw(get_vpn_user $user $fullname $location); my $ip = shift; my $time = shift; my $status = get_vpn_user($ip, $time); print "$status\n";
but $status never prints anything if the package dies. I have "return 1" at the end of the package, so maybe that's my problem?

My error handling skills are limited to "die" and "warn". I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction on how to handle this.

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).
