Loop exception catching

I'm just learning Python myself, but I just saw an example of
something similar. Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but

while 1:
    except Exception, e:
        print 'Problems: ', e

The else clause is executed UNLESS something is caught.

The example is from Magnus Lie Hetland's "Beginning Python." Sorry if
this is too basic, but it seems to fit.
