Glib::Error(3pm)      User Contributed Perl Documentation     Glib::Error(3pm)

NAME
       Glib::Error -  Exception Objects based on GError

SYNOPSIS
	 eval {
	    my $pixbuf = Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf->new_from_file ($filename);
	    $image->set_from_pixbuf ($pixbuf);
	 };
	 if ($@) {
	    print "$@\n";
	    if (Glib::Error::matches ($@, 'Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf::Error',
					  'unknown-format')) {
	       change_format_and_try_again ();
	    } elsif (Glib::Error::matches ($@, 'Glib::File::Error', 'noent')) {
	       change_source_dir_and_try_again ();
	    } else {
	       # don't know how to handle this
	       die $@;
	    }
	 }

DESCRIPTION
       Gtk2-Perl translates GLib's GError runtime errors into Perl exceptions,
       by creating exception objects based on Glib::Error.  Glib::Error
       overloads the stringification operator, so a Glib::Error object will
       act like a string if used with print() or warn(), so most code using $@
       will not even know the difference.

       The point of having exception objects, however, is that the error
       messages in GErrors are often localized with NLS translation.  Thus,
       it's not good for your code to attempt to handle errors by string
       matching on the the error message.  Glib::Error provides a way to get
       to the deterministic error code.

       You will typically deal with objects that inherit from Glib::Error,
       such as Glib::Convert::Error, Glib::File::Error,
       Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf::Error, etc; these classes are provided by the
       libraries that define the error domains.	 However, it is possible to
       get a base Glib::Error when the bindings encounter an unknown or
       unbound error domain.  The interface used here degrades nicely in such
       a situation, but in general you should submit a bug report to the
       binding maintainer if you get such an exception.

HIERARCHY

METHODS
   scalar = Glib::Error::new ($class, $code, $message)
   scalar = $class->new ($code, $message)
       ·   $code (Glib::Enum) an enumeration value, depends on $class

       ·   $message (string)

       Create a new exception object of type $class, where $class is
       associated with a GError domain.	 $code should be a value from the
       enumeration type associated with this error domain.  $message can be
       anything you like, but should explain what happened from the point of
       view of a user.

   integer = $error->code
       This is the numeric error code.	Normally, you'll want to use "value"
       instead, for readability.

   string = $error->domain
       The error domain.  You normally do not need this, as the object will be
       blessed into a corresponding class.

   string = $error->location
       The source line and file closest to the emission of the exception, in
       the same format that you'd get from croak() or die().

       If there's non-ascii characters in the filename Perl leaves them as raw
       bytes, so you may have to put the string through
       Glib::filename_display_name for a wide-char form.

   boolean = $error->matches ($domain, $code)
       ·   $domain (string)

       ·   $code (scalar)

       Returns true if the exception in $error matches the given $domain and
       $code.  $domain may be a class name or domain quark (that is, the real
       string used in C).  $code may be an integer value or an enum nickname;
       the enum type depends on the value of $domain.

   string = $error->message
       The error message.  This may be localized, as it is intended to be
       shown to a user.

   Glib::Error::register ($package, $enum_package)
       ·   $package (string) class name to register as a Glib::Error.

       ·   $enum_package (string) class name of the enum type to use for this
	   domain's error codes.

       Register a new error domain.  Glib::Error will be added @package::ISA
       for you.	 enum_package must be a valid Glib::Enum type, either from a C
       library or registered with "Glib::Type::register_enum".	After
       registering an error domain, you can create or throw exceptions of this
       type.

   scalar = Glib::Error::throw ($class, $code, $message)
   scalar = $class->throw ($code, $message)
       ·   $code (Glib::Enum) an enumeration value, depends on $class

       ·   $message (string)

       Throw an exception with a Glib::Error exception object.	Equivalent to
       "croak (Glib::Error::new ($class, $code, $message));".

   string = $error->value
       The enumeration value nickname of the integer value in "$error->code",
       according to this error domain.	This will not be available if the
       error object is a base Glib::Error, because the bindings will have no
       idea how to get to the correct nickname.
