Exception Handling in Perl
Matt Sergeant, MessageLabs Inc.

Track: Perl
Date: Thursday, July 25
Time: 3:45pm - 4:30pm
Location: Marina III

This session teaches how to use structured exception handling in Perl code. It covers the use of eval{}, $SIG{__DIE__}, throwing exception objects, and some exception classes.

Beginning with exception handling as a technique for propogating errors better than return codes and $!, we progress up to the details of Perl's exception handling mechanism: die, and discuss ways of catching exceptions.

Finally we will cover best practices, and modules.
