Here is one of the links that talks about exceptions not being part of Perl. My bad again, I got mixed up with errors and exceptions, and if you berate me for that I would totally understand- https://www.oreilly.com/library/view/mastering-perl/9780596527242/ch12.html
Given below is paragraph from the chapter -
Perl doesnít have exceptions. Letís just get that clear right now. Lik
+e some other things Perl doesnít really have, people have figured out
+ how to fake them. If youíre used to languages, such as Java or Pytho
+n, set the bar much lower so you arenít too disappointed. In those ot
+her languages, exceptions are part of the fundamental design, and tha
+tís how Iím supposed to deal with all errors. Exceptions arenít part
+of Perlís design, and itís not how Perl programmers tend to deal with
Unfortunately I could not find other links. I was just going from one article to another and that is how I stumbled across the said articles.
Note:- I am not hear to badmouth about Perl. Just really badly wanting to get some clarity (which the ensuing answers have provided in truckloads).
