autodie::exception::system(3p) Perl Programmers Reference Guide autodie::exception::system(3p)

autodie::exception::system - Exceptions from autodying system().

    eval {
        use autodie qw(system);
        system($cmd, @args);
    if (my $E = $@) {
        say "Ooops!  ",$E->caller," had problems: $@";

This is a autodie::exception class for failures from the "system" command.

Presently there is no way to interrogate an "autodie::exception::system" object for the command, exit status, and other information you'd expect such an object to hold. The interface will be expanded to accommodate this in the future.

When stringified, "autodie::exception::system" objects currently use the message generated by IPC::System::Simple.
