NAME

No::Worries::Die - error handling without worries

SYNOPSIS

  use No::Worries::Die qw(dief handler);

  open($fh, "<", $path) or dief("cannot open(%s): %s", $path, $!);
  ... not reached in case of failure ...

  $ ./myprog
  myprog: cannot open(foo): No such file or directory

  $ NO_WORRIES=confess ./myprog
  myprog: cannot open(foo): No such file or directory at myprog line 16
      main::test() called at ./myprog line 19

DESCRIPTION

This module eases error handling by providing a convenient wrapper around die() with sprintf()-like API. dief() is to die() what printf() is to print() with, in addition, the trimming of leading and trailing spaces.

It also provides a handler for die() that prepends a prefix ($No::Worries::Die::Prefix) to all errors. It also uses the NO_WORRIES environment variable to find out if Carp's croak() or confess() should be used instead of die(). Finally, the wrapper can be told to also log errors to syslog (see $No::Worries::Die::Syslog).

This handler can be installed simply by importing it:

  use No::Worries::Die qw(dief handler);

Alternatively, it can be installed "manually":

  use No::Worries::Die qw(dief);
  $SIG{__DIE__} = \&No::Worries::Die::handler;

FUNCTIONS

This module provides the following functions (none of them being exported by default):

dief(MESSAGE)

report an error described by the given MESSAGE

dief(FORMAT, ARGUMENTS...)

idem but with sprintf()-like API

handler(MESSAGE)

$SIG{__DIE__} compatible error handler (this function cannot be imported)

GLOBAL VARIABLES

This module uses the following global variables (none of them being exported):

$Prefix

prefix to prepend to all errors (default: the program name)

$Syslog

true if errors should also be sent to syslog using No::Worries::Syslog's syslog_error() (default: false)

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

This module uses the NO_WORRIES environment variable to find out how errors will be reported. Supported values are:

croak

Carp's croak() will be used instead of die()

confess

Carp's confess() will be used instead of die()

SEE ALSO

Carp, No::Worries, No::Worries::Syslog, No::Worries::Warn.
