Subject: Perl exceptions from bound JS constructors do not propagate
Date: Tue, 10 Apr 2007 01:13:11 -0700
To: bug-JavaScript [...] rt.cpan.org
From: "Jesse Thompson" <jesset [...] gmail.com>
I am using JavaScript v1.03 with Perl v5.8.4 on Linux kernel 2.4.27-2-386 running Debian sarge (JavaScript.pm compiled against Spidermonkey 1.60 straight from Mozilla, not from Debian packaged version). It appears as though Perl exceptions (such as 'die' statements or run time errors) that occur while running a subroutine bound as a JS constructor do not propagate to JS level as an exception. If such a "Perl exception" happens during a JS method (object or static) instead however, the error propagates as expected. Attached is a test case. Run as is, the diagnostic displays a blessed object. when you uncomment "test point 2" you get a well documented error message. When you uncomment "Test point #1" however, the message goes unreported and you get a blank (uncontructed) object instead of a blessed hash. Suggested workarounds prior to fix: If appropriate, a developer may arrange to have his JavaScript forgo formal constructors and simply call methods right after construction to accomplish the needed housekeeping. - - Jesse Thompson Webformix, Bend OR

Righteous :) I don't have an environment set up right now to confirm your success. but congratulations man. Are there other people who have picked up the banner of this project? Is there a community developing yet? - - Jesse On Nov 19, 2007 7:47 AM, Claes Jakobsson via RT <bug-JavaScript@rt.cpan.org> wrote: Show quoted text
