Personally I think the following little trick/modification makes for cleaner code... (and I think that raise_error makes more sense if it contains the error message returned...)
sub bar { my( $self, @args )= @_; eval { $self->method( @args ); 1} or $self->raise_error( $@, @_ ) and return undef; }
If you can contrive to make raise_error() return undef you can make it even cleaner
sub bar { my( $self, @args )= @_; eval { $self->method( @args ); 1} or return $self->raise_error( $@, @_ ); }
