    • autodie for IO operations.
    • RaiseError with DBI.
    • XML::Parser: A die call is thrown if a parse error occurs.
    • XML::LibXML will throw an exception if a parsing error occurs.
    • warnings can be elevated to fatals. See perllexwarn.
    • strict will make some risky behaviors an error that won't allow execution to begin.
    • perlrun: Taint mode will throw an exception if it catches you doing unsafe things with tainted input.
    • You can, of course, pepper your code with or die $! or or die "Message..."

    There are plenty of other possibilities too, if we knew what you're after.

    Uhm, the default for Perl is to die on error. So, I'm not sure what you are asking.
