Meta Index / Home Page / Developer's notes
Within the SAS a single error handling mechanism is used. The philosophy
is that errors are handled where they are generated. This means that as
soon as an error occurs a message is generated and the task is aborted.
The error handling mechanism does not continue execution with an error
flag set, such as in CFITSIO; it does not provide an alternative return
path, such as with exceptions.
An error message has an associated code ID. Code IDs should be unique
within a task.
