  • ... and is all just a question of the API.

    No single argument against using $@ is really addressing this important
    point. Most alternatives are just eval flavors, which in turn return an
    undefined value and set $@, so i don't count those as different.

    Others provide new features, come with overhead but solve no new problem.

    But in the end we're just talking about different error handling APIs...
    and i like the Perl builtin way too :-).
