perl-Error provides a perl module for error/exception handling in an
OO-ish way.  This module provides two interfaces.  Firstly, 'Error'
provides a procedural interface to exception handling.  Secondly 'Error'
is a base class for errors/exceptions that can either be thrown, for
subsequent catch, or can simply be recorded.
