in reply to backwards compatible 'die $obj'


this query on

lists over 30 potential distributions named \b(Carp|Throw|Die|Try|Catch|Exception|Error) and including use\s+overload

I didn't link directly to the query to avoid unnecessary traffic.

grep.metacpan still seems to be work in progress, it didn't refresh automatically for me and I had to reload.

It's also listing dozens of empty result pages.

Not all hits are valid, I couldn't narrow it down yet to only those overloading '""' explicitly, because a) perl has many q("") expressions and b) they need to be on the same line for the query.

I guess at most half of those hits are valid, but refining the search with the API gives a powerful tool to find valid modules. :)
