Section 11: Exceptions

Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 2219)

Abstract

This section defines the facilities for dealing with errors or other exceptional situations that arise during program execution. An exception represents a kind of exceptional situation; an occurrence of such a situation (at run time) is called an exception occurrence. To raise an exception is to abandon normal program execution so as to draw attention to the fact that the corresponding situation has arisen. Performing some actions in response to the arising of an exception is called handling the exception.
