NAME

       Scope::Guard - lexically-scoped resource management

SYNOPSIS

           my $guard = guard { ... };

             # or

           my $guard = scope_guard \&handler;

             # or

           my $guard = Scope::Guard->new(sub { ... });

           $guard->dismiss(); # disable the handler

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides a convenient way to perform cleanup or other forms of resource
       management at the end of a scope. It is particularly useful when dealing with exceptions:
       the "Scope::Guard" constructor takes a reference to a subroutine that is guaranteed to be
       called even if the thread of execution is aborted prematurely. This effectively allows
       lexically-scoped "promises" to be made that are automatically honoured by perl's garbage
       collector.

       For more information, see: <http://www.drdobbs.com/cpp/184403758>

METHODS

   new
           my $guard = Scope::Guard->new(sub { ... });

             # or

           my $guard = Scope::Guard->new(\&handler);

       The "new" method creates a new "Scope::Guard" object which calls the supplied handler when
       its "DESTROY" method is called, typically at the end of the scope.

   dismiss
           $guard->dismiss();

             # or

           $guard->dismiss(1);

       "dismiss" detaches the handler from the "Scope::Guard" object. This revokes the "promise"
       to call the handler when the object is destroyed.

       The handler can be re-enabled by calling:

           $guard->dismiss(0);

EXPORTS

   guard
       "guard" takes a block and returns a new "Scope::Guard" object. It can be used as a
       shorthand for:

           Scope::Guard->new(...)

       e.g.

           my $guard = guard { ... };

       Note: calling "guard" anonymously, i.e. in void context, will raise an exception.  This is
       because anonymous guards are destroyed immediately (rather than at the end of the scope),
       which is unlikely to be the desired behaviour.

   scope_guard
       "scope_guard" is the same as "guard", but it takes a code ref rather than a block.  e.g.

           my $guard = scope_guard \&handler;

       or:

           my $guard = scope_guard sub { ... };

       or:

           my $guard = scope_guard $handler;

       As with "guard", calling "scope_guard" in void context will raise an exception.
