3.11. Error Objects

ECMAScript v3 defines a number of classes that represent errors. The JavaScript interpreter "throws" an object of one of these types when a runtime error occurs. (See the throw and try statements in Chapter 6 for a discussion of throwing and catching errors.) Each error object has a message property that contains an implementation-specific error message. The types of predefined error objects are Error, EvalError, RangeError, ReferenceError, SyntaxError, TypeError, and URIError. You can find out more about these classes in the core reference section of this book.
