Name

Unexpected - Localised exception classes composed from roles

Synopsis

   package YourApp::Exception;

   use Moo;

   extends 'Unexpected';
   with    'Unexpected::TraitFor::ErrorLeader';

   __PACKAGE__->ignore_class( 'YourApp::IgnoreMe' );

   has '+class' => default => __PACKAGE__;

   package YourApp;

   use YourApp::Exception;
   use Try::Tiny;

   sub some_method {
      my $self = shift;

      try   { this_will_fail }
      catch { YourApp::Exception->throw $_ };
   }

   # OR

   sub some_method {
      my $self = shift;

      eval { this_will_fail };
      YourApp::Exception->throw_on_error;
   }

   # THEN
   try   { $self->some_method() }
   catch { warn $_->message };

Description

An exception class that supports error messages with placeholders, a throw method with automatic re-throw upon detection of self, conditional throw if an exception was caught and a simplified stack trace in addition to the error message with full stack trace

Configuration and Environment

Applies exception roles to the exception base class Unexpected. See "Dependencies" for the list of roles that are applied

The list of constructor methods signatures is described in build_attr_from

Error objects are overloaded to stringify to the full error message plus a leader if the optional ErrorLeader role has been applied

Subroutines/Methods

BUILD

Dummy subroutine which is modified by the applied roles

BUILDARGS

Differentiates different constructor method signatures

Diagnostics

String overload is performed in this class as opposed to the stringify error role since overloading is not supported in Moo::Role

Incompatibilities

There are no known incompatibilities in this module

Bugs and Limitations

Throwable did not let me use the stack trace filter directly, it's wrapped inside an attribute constructor. There was nothing else in Throwable that would not have been overridden

There are no known bugs in this module. Please report problems to http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Unexpected. Patches are welcome

Throwable::Error - Lifted the stack frame filter from here
