Test::Exception is a Perl test module that provides a few convenience methods
for testing exception-based code. It is built with Test::Builder and plays
happily with Test::More and friends.
Note that this module only checks for exceptions, so it ignores other methods
of halting program executing - including exit(). If your code causes the Perl
interpreter to exit, Test::Exception won't be able to catch it.
