Trapping Error Object

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I have written some code that sends MS Alerts. It works well, but I cannot figure out how to trap errors. I want to be able to trap errors in a manner similar to the asp error object or at least retrieve the same info.

    I think that what you want is eval BLOCK but all this is a little vague.

    You would do something like:

    eval { # do something that might raise a fatal error }; if ( $@ ) { # do something to report the error # $@ contains the error message or error object }

    However it might be useful if you gave us a bit more of a clue as to what it was you were trying to do.
