Mouldable Alert Handling
Mouldable alert handling is a technique that provides a uniform and flexible
interface to all common failure handling mechanisms such as exceptions,
global error variables and magic return values. The technique separates the
handling of an exceptional situation from its reporting, and it can be
easily retro-fitted into existing libraries. On this page, you will find
documentation and prototype language extensions demonstrating this
