in thread Style Point: Catching eval { } errors

Good ideas can come from otherwise crappy languages. I think Java-style exception handling was a really good idea that Perl can almost (but not quite) do without using modules. With modules like Exception, you can get 90% of what Java has. You can get closer with Error, but it has other problems.

    You mentioned Error.pm having problems a couple of times - can you be a bit more specific about the particulars of these problems?

    I find myself using Error.pm quite a bit in web applications, and would be quite interested to know.

      This node puts it far better than I could.

    Given than Exception uses closures like Error I doubt it doesn't have these "other" problems too. The main problem is that currently the only way to add try/catch syntax to Perl without core changes it is to use closures what may cause memory leaks if you are not careful.
