I basically want to trap errors in a way that it would be easier for me
@Errors doesn't work for me anymore :)
Also that's not global across my Apache handlers and some of my
I've looked at Error.pm and Exception::Class - but not in depth.
I basically want to call a function that verifies the form values that a
user submitted and stores them in a database.
So in such situation I have a few types of errors, what just comes to my
mind at the moment:
- DB errors (duplicate key, invalid query, the number of arguments
didn't match the number of placeholders...)
- Form errors (username cannot contain numeric digits, or whatever)
- I usually have some internal errors (user does not have permissions to
I want to do this in a way that looks good, easy to maintain, and of
course - easy to trap the cause of the error - and act according to that
(e.g: I don't want the user to know that I screwed up with counting
placeholders, but I do want him to know that his username isn't valid).
I'm sure you guys have been using the abovementioned tools, or similar
tools/tricks, and could help me.
Examples could really help me figure out what method fits me best - so
please send some :p
