Strange, why aren't you just setting up your own $SIG{__DIE__} handler? It seems tailor-made to solve your problem for you. Granted, it's a hack, and can get messy, but it's a far better hack than trying to overload another module's subroutines globally.

A long time back I went down this road, as well. I thought it was a great idea to setup a __DIE__ handler and catch all the errors, turning them into pretty output for a web framework I was designing. I suppose it worked, sorta. It's much cleaner to design an actual exception model, with exception classes thrown by code, and possibly a catch routine that can transform string exceptions into a relevant object.

If the object in $@ has stringification it shouldn't break anything that's attempting to match against it. The only thing it should "break" is something that's checking to see if it's an object, in which case that code should know what it's doing.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
