in reply to Strack traces with Exception::Class

From Exception::Class documentation:

* Trace($boolean) Each "Exception::Class::Base" subclass can be set individually to include a a stracktrace when the "as_string" method is called. The default is to not include a stacktrace. Calling this method with a value changes this behavior. It always returns the current value (after any change is applied). This value is inherited by any subclasses. However, if this value is set for a subclass, it will there- after be independent of the value in "Excep- tion::Class::Base". This is a class method, not an object method.

I.e if you need stacktraces for exception class MyException (and its childs) you need to add


Alternatively you can just redefine as_string() method to print uncaught exceptions as you wish.

    Hopefully, this isn't too old to post to.

    I just had to solve this problem myself. I wanted all exceptions to show stack traces all the time. Since Trace($boolean) is a class method, I just did this (see below) once, and it worked for all child/sub classes and their objects.


    I put that right after my use statement.
