Try::Tiny::ByClass(3) selectively catch exceptions by class name


use Try::Tiny::ByClass;

try {
die $exception_object;
} catch_case [
'Some::Class' => sub {
# handle Some::Class exceptions
'Exception::DivByZero' => sub {
# handle Exception::DivByZero exceptions
], finally {
# always do this


This module is a simple wrapper around "Try::Tiny", which see. It re-exports "try", "catch", and "finally".

In addition, it provides a way to catch only some exceptions by filtering on the class (including superclasses and consumed roles) of an exception object.


catch_case ($;@)
Intended to be used instead of "catch" in the second argument position of "try".

Instead of a block it takes a reference to an array of "CLASS => CODEREF" pairs, which it passes on to "dispatch" in "Dispatch::Class".
