NAME ^

Bot::Cobalt::Error - Lightweight error objects

SYNOPSIS ^

  package SomePackage;
  
  sub some_method {
    . . .
    
    die Bot::Cobalt::Error->new(
      "Some errors occured:",
      @errors
    )->join("\n");

    ## ... same as:
    die Bot::Cobalt::Error->new(
      "Some errors occured:\n",
      join("\n", @errors)
    );
  }
  
  
  package CallerPackage;
  
  use Try::Tiny;
  
  try {
    SomePackage->some_method();
  } catch {
    ## $error isa Bot::Cobalt::Error
    my $error = $_;
    
    ## Stringifies to the error string:
    warn "$error\n";
  };

DESCRIPTION ^

A lightweight exception object for Bot::Cobalt.

new() takes a list of messages used to compose an error string.

The objects themselves stringify to the concatenated stored errors.

A Devel::StackTrace instance is created at construction time; it is accessible via "trace".

string

Returns the current error string; this is the same value returned when the object is stringified, such as:

  warn "$error\n";

join

  $error = $error->join("\n");

Returns a new object whose only element is the result of joining the stored list of errors with the specified expression.

Defaults to joining with a single space. Does not modify the existing object.

push

  $error = $error->push(@errors);

Appends the specified list to the existing array of errors.

Modifies and returns the existing object.

slice

  $error = $error->slice(0 .. 2);

Returns a new object whose elements are as specified. Does not modify the existing object.

throw

  my $err = Bot::Cobalt::Error->new;
  $err->push( @errors );
  $err->throw

Throw an exception by calling die() with the current object. The Devel::StackTrace object is reinstanced from where throw() is called (see "trace").

trace

  ## Stack trace as string:
  warn $error->trace->as_string;

A Devel::StackTrace instance; see Devel::StackTrace.

unshift

  $error = $error->unshift(@errors);

Prepends the specified list to the existing array of errors.

Modifies and returns the existing object.
