NAME ^

Acme::ExceptionEater - Prevents eval from returning an exception.

VERSION ^

This document describes Acme::ExceptionEater version 0.0.1

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Acme::ExceptionEater;
    eval {
        my $ee = Acme::ExceptionEater->new();
        die 'My final wish is for you to know this...';
    };
    # $@ is still ''

DESCRIPTION ^

Placing an Acme::ExceptionEater object in a lexical in the outer-most scope of an eval will prevent exceptions from escaping the eval where they may confuse, annoy, frighten, or inform others.

Simply instanciate an Acme::ExceptionEater object at the start of the eval. When the eater goes out of scope and Perl does garbage collection, it will eat any exceptions that might be waiting to pass on their final words to the code after the eval.

METHODS ^

new

Creates a new Acme::ExceptionEater object. For Acme::ExceptionEater to work, this object must not be prematurely destroyed.

DIAGNOSTICS ^

None. Acme::ExceptionEater produces fewer than zero error messages.

CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT ^

DEPENDENCIES ^

None.

INCOMPATIBILITIES ^

None reported.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

No bugs have been reported.
