( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

my method is similar, but different...

## let's say bar is a method in foo sub bar { my( $self, @args )= @_; eval { $self->method( @args ) }; $@ and $self->raise_error( @_ ) and return undef; } ## called like: my $foo= foo->new(); my $result= $foo->bar( @args ) or warn $foo->Error();

the method sets an error and returns undef, allowing the caller to deal with the error as it sees fit. of course, you might want to handle a method that can return 0 by using defined
