he modern version would require wrapping every single statement in its own "Pokémon exception-handling" block.
Which would mean splitting all variable declarations from their assignments, since a variable declared inside a try block can't be used outside of that block.
Which would also mean giving every variable some sort of default value, either when they're declared, or in the empty catch block for the first line that assigns them.
And don't forget to update the properties of the global Err object, in case the user gave any thought to checking for errors on the following line, and didn't just let their code trundle on regardless and destroy the program state / database / computer / world
Now I understand why you love VB so much!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
I like INTERCAL's ABSTAIN. You get statements like:
PLEASE ABSTAIN FROM CALCULATING
Also, to exit the program, you use:
PLEASE GIVE UP
The PLEASE is optional. If you don't use it enough, through, the compiler will reject your program for not being polite enough. You do have to be careful with it: using PLEASE too often will get your program rejected for excessive politeness.
