NAME

Wasm::Trap - Wasm trap class

VERSION

version 0.21

SYNOPSIS

 use Wasm::Trap;
 
 my $trap = Wasm::Trap->new(
   "something went bump in the night\0",
 );

DESCRIPTION

WARNING: WebAssembly and Wasmtime are a moving target and the interface for these modules is under active development. Use with caution.

This class represents a trap thrown into or out of WebAssembly. It can be thrown back to WebAssembly via die in a Perl function called from WebAssembly. It can be caught in Perl via eval around WebAssembly.

The actual implementation may be a super or subclass. As of this writing it is a simple wrapper around Wasm::Wasmtime::Trap, but relying on that is undefined behavior. In order to catch a trap from WebAssembly, use this class name like so:

 use Ref::Util qw( is_blessed_ref );

 local $@ = '';
 eval {
   web_assembly_func();
 };
 if(my $error = $@)
 {
   if(is_blessed_ref $error && $error->isa('Wasm::Trap'))
   {
     my $message = $error->message;
     my $exit_value = $error->exit_value;
     print "message    = $message\n";
     print "exit_value = $exit_value\n";
   }
 }

To throw from Perl:

 use Wasm::Trap;

 sub perl_from_wasm
 {
   die Wasm::Trap->new("diagnostic\0");
 }

CONSTRUCTORS

new

 my $trap = Wasm::Trap->new($message);

This creates a new trap object.

METHODS

message

 my $message = $trap->message;

Returns the trap message as a string.

exit_status

 my $status = $trap->exit_status;

If the trap was triggered by an exit call, this will return the exist status code. If it wasn't triggered by an exit call it will return undef.
