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
The exception classes created by Exception::Class::DBI are designed to be
thrown in certain DBI contexts; the code reference returned by
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.
