Description : Replace functions with ones that succeed or die
with lexical scope



The autodie pragma provides a convenient way to replace functions that
normally return false on failure with equivalents that throw an
exception on failure.


The autodie pragma has lexical scope, meaning that functions and
subroutines altered with autodie will only change their behaviour
until the end of the enclosing block, file, or eval.


If system is specified as an argument to autodie, then it uses
IPC::System::Simple to do the heavy lifting. See the description of
that module for more information.
