Try/catch IS safe in R10B-0
Tue Oct 26 11:44:42 CEST 2004
The wrong release note about try/catch was included in R10b-0
Try/catch as included in OTP R10B-0 has no known problems.
It does have the restriction that no variables can be exported
out from any part of the try/catch construct. We might lift that
restriction in a future release if either:
1) It really turns out to be needed for writing real-world programs.
2) We'll start to sleep bad at night because an inconsistency has
slipt into the language. :)
