Crate failure[][src]

An experimental new error-handling library. Guide-style introduction is available here.

The primary items exported by this library are:

As a general rule, library authors should create their own error types and implement Fail for them, whereas application authors should primarily deal with the Error type. There are exceptions to this rule, though, in both directions, and users should do whatever seems most appropriate to their situation.

Backtraces

Backtraces are disabled by default. To turn backtraces on, enable the backtrace Cargo feature and set the RUST_BACKTRACE environment variable to a non-zero value (this also enables backtraces for panics). Use the RUST_FAILURE_BACKTRACE variable to enable or disable backtraces for failure specifically.

Causes

A iterator over the causes of a Fail
