I haven't used Graham Barr's Exception module (actually called Error.pm)
but I intend to check it out and encourage others to as well. It is
available from your favorite CPAN mirror such as:
I've noted that the COPE project uses Torsten Ekedahl's
Torsten's module contains some C glue whereas Graham's does not.
I don't know why COPE chose Experimental::Exception.pm over
Error.pm. Could have been historical.
I think it would be great if Bioperl adopted a standard exception
handling mechanism but I worry about requiring additional modules that
are not part of the Perl source distribution since it would make Bioperl
modules harder to install/use if you also need to install external modules
and to learn their interfaces. However, exception handling is such an
important issue that it may be worth it.
I've heard that the Perl 5.005 release may include Graham's Exception
module but I don't know if this is still true.
