IDC: Exceptions

Any runtime error generates an exception. Exceptions terminate the execution. It is possible to catch an exception instead of terminating the execution:
        auto e;
        try
        {
          ... some statements that cause a runtime error...
        }
        catch ( e )
        {
          // e holds the exception information
          // it is an instance of the exception class
        }
The try/catch blocks can be nested. If the current function has no try/catch blocks, the calling function will be examined, and so on, until we find a try/catch block or exit the main function. If no try/catch block is found, an unhandled exception is reported.

It is also possible to throw an exception explicitly. Any object can be thrown. For example:

        throw 5;
will throw value '5'.
