Error handling for Perl build scripts.
Posted on 2005-03-03
We have many build scripts in Perl, for different products and platforms.
As a newbie, I found some errors are not handled and troubled us from time to time, such as network issues or some branched processes became idled.
I want to add the error handling codes but there are too many of the old Perl scripts.
What are the recommended ways if you are in my position? Write a wrapper to call those scripts and do error handling from there?
Any help will be appreciated.
