Abstract

Modern programming languages support the TRY/CATCH block for recovering from errors. However, it doesn't support the notion of fixing the error and then retrying the original block of code that failed. In order to do that the programmer would have to effectively repeat the code again within the CATCH block or wrap the TRY / CATCH block with a conditional control loop.
