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

Stages of error handling:

  1. Hey, this is easy - just grab the return code, and use it...
    $rc = func(); if ($rc != 0) { die "Failed to func!"; }
  2. Oh, neat! Exceptions!
    eval { func(); } if ($@) { die "Failed to func: $@"; }
  3. Exceptions/OO are da bomb! Look at this!
    use Error::Handler; $rc = func(); if (not $rc->ok()) { die $rc->error_msg(); }
  4. Damn, that's way too much work...
    $rc = func(); if ($rc != 0) { die "Failed to func!"; }

At least, that's my experience...

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
    ] &#93;
