Use the following syntax in your Executes:
Execute({inputfile => 'file.epl', errors => \@errors});

Its easier to capture errors under EmbperlObject since you just need
to update your template files:
        my @errors;
        Execute({inputfile => '*', errors => \@errors});
        if (@errors) {
                Execute('notify_error.epr', \@errors);

In the "notify_error.epr" page you can send a message with all debugging
data you need like fdat, udat, ENV and etc.

But to not show the default Embperl error page you have to set 2
options in httpd.conf:

First configure your own error page
ErrorDocument 500 /errors/500.epo

Second disable the default error page from Embperl

With this setup you will also trap ANY error that happens in your
pages, even that not caused inside those trapped Executes. To obtain
the error messages in these cases put the following lines in your
error page (500.epo):

if ($req_rec && ($prev = $req_rec->prev)) {
        $errors = $prev->pnotes('EMBPERL_ERRORS');
        if ($errors && @$errors) {
                Execute('notify_error.epr', $errors);

This setup works for me under Embperl 1.3, I don't know how different
it is under Embperl 2.x

Hope this helps,
