in thread Forgetfulness and 6-months-from-now-you

I don't take it the wrong way :)

Most of my work is generating content for an API, which wants specifically formatted error handling (which I conveniently left out of my post). I want to die in a clean, and parse-able, way so that the programmer on the other end can either a) figure out what they did wrong or b) communicate with me effectively about what happened. I also use a lot of Mark Overmeer's excellent Log::Report module to make sane logs for internal analysis.

I COULD override die, I guess, and generate something that way. But my laziness doesn't extend that far.

    I would probably be that lazy:

    my $dbh=DBI->connect(..., {RaiseError => 1}); # later: if (eval { # use $dbh # perhaps the entire API handling 1; }) { # report success to the API } else { my $error=$@; # Post-Process $error if needed # report $error to the API }
