NAME

Try::Tiny::Warnings - extension to Try::Tiny to also catch warnings

VERSION

version 0.1.0

SYNOPSIS

    use Try::Tiny::Warnings ':all';

    {
        package Foo;

        use warnings;

        sub bar { 1 + shift }
    }

    Foo::bar();  # warn

    # makes 'warn' behave like 'die'
    try_fatal_warnings {
        Foo::bar();
    }
    catch {
        print "tsk, got $_";
    };

    # warnings are captured and passed
    # to 'catch_warnings'
    try_warnings {
        Foo::bar();
        warn "some more";
    }
    catch {
        print "won't be printed\n";
    }
    catch_warnings {
        print "we warned with: $_" for @_;
    };

DESCRIPTION

Try::Tiny::Warnings adds a few keywords to Try::Tiny to deal with warnings.

The first keyword, try_fatal_warnings, behaves like try, excepts that it also makes any warn() within its block behave like die(). If the block dies because of such a fatalized warn, it'll be catched in the usual way.

    try_fatal_warnings {
        warn "uh oh";
    }
    catch {
        print $_; # prints 'uh oh'
    };

The two other keywords are meant to be used together. try_warnings also behaves like try, but also capture all warnings issued within the block. The captured warnings will be passed to catch_warnings, which is a specialized finally block. Just like regular finally blocks, many catch_warnings blocks can be used if you so desire.

    try_warnings {
        warn "oops!";
        $x = 4;
    }
    finally {
        $y = $x + 3;
    }
    catch_warnings {
            # percolate up non-silly warnings
        warn for grep { !/oops/ } @_;    
    };

Note that using catch_warnings with try_fatal_warnings is pointless.

Also, because catch_warnings is a finally in disguise, it has to come after the regular catch clause.

Export

By default, Try::Tiny::Warnings exports try_fatal_warnings, try_warnings and catch_warnings. For convenience, Try::Tiny's try, catch and finally can also be imported via this module.

    use Try::Tiny;
    use Try::Tiny::Warnings;

    # equivalent to 

    use Try::Tiny::Warnings ':all';

    # can be picky too

    use Try::Tiny::Warnings qw/ try catch catch_warnings /;
