PPI::Exception - The PPI exception base class
use PPI::Exception; my $e = PPI::Exception->new( 'something happened' ); $e->throw; PPI::Exception->new( message => 'something happened' )->throw; PPI::Exception->throw( message => 'something happened' );
All exceptions thrown from within PPI will be instances or derivations of this class.
new $message | message => $message, ...¶
Constructs and returns a new "PPI::Exception" object.
A message for the exception can be passed, either as a string or as "message => $message". The message is available via the "message" method.
If called on a "PPI::Exception" object, throws the object. If called on the class name, uses the arguments to construct a "PPI::Exception" and then throw it.
Each time the object is thrown, information from the Perl <caller(0)> call is saved and made available via the "callers" method.
This method never returns.
Returns the exception message passed to the object's constructor, or a default message.
Returns a listref, each element of which is a listref of caller(0) information. The returned listref can be empty.
