in reply to Re: CGI Error Handling
in thread CGI Error Handling

I like eval blocks
eval { #any code in here yourSub(); } if ($@){ # $@ contains err message if error occurs warn " continue with script but there has been an erro $@ \n"; #run error handling routine ErrorHandle(); }

The average user finds a standard Apache error page v scary so I try and make an error doc for every error possible.

ErrorDocument 404 /missing.html ErrorDocument 401 /auth_error.html

Update amended to consider below

    Two important pieces of advice.

    The first is to pick an indentation style indenting between 2-4 spaces, and then start using it. Now. Running your code through perltidy will show you what it looks like.

    The second is to call functions with explicit parameters. That means using parens. As documented in perlsub, if you use just the plain & and in a function you call another function, that other function will get the parameters to the first as arguments.

    Believe me. You may think these are picky details. But they are not. The first strongly impacts how easy it is to pick out your logic at a glance. The second is causing a subtle set of side-effects that may or may not be intended which a maintainance programmer may or may not know enough to notice.

      thanks pure lazyness on my part inbred by auto indenting text editors and tab keys.

[stonecolddevin]: I've been on a Stevie Ray Vaughan kick lately: https://www. youtube.com/watch? v=wVjdMLAMbM0
[stonecolddevin]: Corion I haven't heard much of his work to be honest.
[erix]: here is a nice cover, stevieb
[planetscape]: hello, Corion
[Corion]: Hi planetscape!
[stevieb]: Corion I like the groundbreaking ones (guitar players). I have the ability to pick up on sounds that are groundbreaking or specific to a person, thanks to my years of doing recording/mixing/ sampling (hip-hop mind you, but years of it...
[stevieb]: ...has honed in my skills of recognizing sound
[stevieb]: All of the early members are coming out of the woodwork today :) Hey, planetscape
[Corion]: This cover version had so much promise but the singing is underwhelming :-/
[stevieb]: erix Thanks! I dislike remakes of songs usually, but my favourite remix of guitar/weeps is Jeff Healey. I'll take a listen to yours
