Abstract

This chapter defines the facilities for dealing with errors or other exceptional situations that arise during program execution. An exception is an event that causes suspension of normal program execution. Drawing attention to the event is called raising the exception. Executing some actions, in response to the occurrence of an exception, is called handling the exception.
