HTTP::Throwable::Role::TextBody - an exception with a plaintext body


version 0.028


This is a very simple role, implementing the required as_string, body, and body_headers for HTTP::Throwable. In turn, it requires that a text_body method be provided.

When an HTTP::Throwable exception uses this role, its PSGI response will have a text/plain content type and will send the result of calling its text_body method as the response body. It will also stringify to the text body.

The role HTTP::Throwable::Role::BoringText can be useful to provide a text_body method that issues the status_line as the body.


This library should run on perls released even a long time ago. It should work on any version of perl released in the last five years.

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.
