Never used Java.  Mostly just C.  All in all, I like these exceptions 
better than C's error codes, because I mostly just write trivial little 
programs that would just print a message and exit if I detected an 
error--and exceptions do that automatically with no active checking on 
my part.

But the thought occured to me that if I _did_ want to handle exceptions, 
I would have no idea what the possibilities even were.
