Version ^

This documents version v0.23.$Rev: 2 $ of Unexpected

Description ^

An exception class that supports error messages with placeholders, a throw method with automatic re-throw upon detection of self, conditional throw if an exception was caught and a simplified stack trace in addition to the error message with full stack trace

Configuration and Environment ^

Applies exception roles to the exception base class Unexpected. See "Dependencies" for the list of roles that are applied

Error objects are overloaded to stringify to the full error message plus a leader if the optional ErrorLeader role has been applied

Subroutines/Methods ^


Customizes the constructor. Accepts either a coderef, an object ref, a hashref, a scalar, or a list of key / value pairs


Does nothing placeholder that allows the applied roles to modify it


   $bool = $class->is_one_of_us( $string_or_exception_object_ref );

Class method which detects instances of this exception class

Diagnostics ^

String overload is performed in this class as opposed to the stringify error role since overloading is not supported in Moo::Role

Dependencies ^


Incompatibilities ^

There are no known incompatibilities in this module

Bugs and Limitations ^

Throwable did not let me use the stack trace filter directly, it's wrapped inside an attribute constructor. There was nothing else in Throwable that would not have been overridden

There are no known bugs in this module. Please report problems to Patches are welcome

Acknowledgements ^

Larry Wall - For the Perl programming language

Throwable::Error - Lifted the stack frame filter from here

John Sargent - Came up with the package name
