Error handling: try.. catch java-style error handling in Lotusscript

Even javascript has this!

java/javascript is like this:

try {

   some lines of code...

   some code that erros

} catch(error) {

   deal with error



With new Try Catch End Try block, Lotusscript could be ..


   Do this

   Do that

   Do another

Catch <errornumber optional>

   Do something with Error$, Erl etc

End Try


- can be nested

- no resume required

- easier to write code which looks after itself



I would celebrate with an ice cream.
