Description : Perl module providing minimal try/catch
Try::Tiny provides bare bones try/catch statements that are designed to
minimize common mistakes with eval blocks, and NOTHING else.
This is unlike TryCatch which provides a nice syntax and avoids adding
another call stack layer, and supports calling return from the try block to
return from the parent subroutine. These extra features come at a cost of a
few dependencies, namely Devel::Declare and Scope::Upper which are
occasionally problematic, and the additional catch filtering uses Moose type
constraints which may not be desirable either.
The main focus of this module is to provide simple and reliable error
handling for those having a hard time installing TryCatch, but who still want
to write correct eval blocks without 5 lines of boilerplate each time.
Try::Tiny is required by the new release of Moose (libmoose-perl).
