Devel::Confess::Builtin(3) Enable built in stack traces on exception objects


use Devel::Confess::Builtin;
use Exception::Class 'MyException';
MyException->throw; # includes stack trace


Many existing exception module can provide stack traces, but this is often not the default setting. This module will force as many modules as possible to include stack traces by default. It can be loaded before or after the exception modules, and it will still function.

For supported modules, it will also prevent Devel::Confess from attaching its own stack traces.


  • Exception::Class
  • Ouch
  • Class::Throwable
  • Exception::Base


This module relies partly on the internal implementation of the modules it effects. Future updates to the modules could break or be broken by this module.
