DESCRIPTION

This class represents an error returned by MaxMind's GeoIP2 web service. It extends Throwable::Error and adds attributes of its own.

METHODS

The "$error->message()", and "$error->stack_trace()" methods are inherited from Throwable::Error. The message will be the value provided by the MaxMind web service. See <http://dev.maxmind.com/geoip/geoip2/web-services> for details.

It also provides three methods of its own:

$error->code()

Returns the code returned by the MaxMind GeoIP2 web service.

$error->http_status()

Returns the HTTP status. This should be either a 4xx or 5xx error.

$error->uri()

Returns the URI which gave the HTTP error.

SUPPORT

Bugs may be submitted through <https://github.com/maxmind/GeoIP2-perl/issues>.
