Restartable exceptions?

[ #33857 ]

Sometime in the last few weeks I think I read somewhere in perl-lands that someone had figured out restartable exceptions. I can't remember where I saw it.

    • That's it exactly. I recall searching for it on your blog but didn't find it. Oh well.

      BTW, in languages with continuations, is packaging a start to a work unit into an exception a pattern for dealing with soft-failure? It assumes re-evaluating the things from the continuation point is ok but it might allow a "try it again" idea without having to be fully informed about what "it" is.

      Have fun at OSCON.
