[REBOL] Re: How safe is catch []

From: SQLAB:gmx at: 25-Apr-2005 14:20

Hi Volker Try seems to be safe in that case, as I use it in the same application many times. Throw some-data has probably the same effect, as my second example was just a shortening. If I remember right, it was more like throw something to a function call a few levels higher AR Volker Nitsch wrote:

I am always in an inner loop and I just want to use throw as Carl recommended instead of the classic C continue.
