( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Everyone knows that die/eval is Perl's exception handling mechanism. However, this primitive can be used in many different ways.

Looking at CPAN, I see a few modules that provide higher-level constructs, including Exception-1.4 by Pete Jordan (mentioned on another thread here, which got me looking), and Exception-Class-0.8 by Dave Rolsky. The former is not in ActiveState's Repository, but the latter is. Why?? Does that mean one is more mature, more often used, etc.?

In general, which of the many exception systems is worth learning and using? Or do they all have their issues? If anyone's used exception handling in general or one of these modules, can you post your thoughts, for comparisons?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
