Exception/Class/DBI version 1.02

This module offers a set of DBI-specific exception classes. They inherit from Exception::Class::Base, the base class for all exception objects created by the Exception::Class module from the CPAN. Exception::Class::DBI itself offers a single class method, handler(), that returns a code reference appropriate for passing the DBI HandleError attribute.

The exception classes created by Exception::Class::DBI are designed to be thrown in certain DBI contexts; the code reference returned by handler() and passed to the DBI `HandleError attribute determines the context, assembles the necessary metadata, and throws the apopropriate exception.

Each of the Exception::Class::DBI classes offers a set of object accessor methods in addition to those provided by Exception::Class::Base. These can be used to output detailed output in the event of an exception.
