try-catch with eval-die

on Jun 29, 2009 at 17:10 UTC ( #775746=perlquestion: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

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

Hi monks,

I'm moving away from using Error qw(:try) into using just eval and die for my try-catch blocks.

The annoying thing is that die always prints the line/file info at the end of the message. Is there a clean way of configuring what die prepends to $@?

I just didn't want to regex-it out of $@ myself.

many thanks,

    As discussed in die, if your die (or warn) message is terminated with a new-line character, the line/file information will not be included.
