Explore different options to call throwing functions inside of other throwing functions, by handling errors internally or requiring the caller to handle them. See how to force try throwing functions when you're certain an error cannot occur.
I'll keep going in the same exercise file…from the previous video.…When a function calls a throwing function in its own…body, there are two options.…The first is that the function can catch and handle…any errors thrown itself.…I'll define a do something function…that calls perform action.…And catches and handles any errors it throws.…And now I'll call it.…
Alternatively, a function that calls the throwing…function can also be marked as a throwing function…and when calling a throwing function in its body,…just prepen that call with try, but do not enclose the call…in a do catch statement.…What this does is push the error handling…for that throwing function,…or propagate the error to the caller of the function.…A throwing function that returns a value…can also be called using an optional try expression…by writing a question mark suffix on the try keyword.…
This will cause the return value to be an optional.…When calling a throwing function that you know will not…fail, you can use a force try expression to disable error…
