# Catch errors¶

Errors used in GetFEM are defined in the file gmm/gmm_except.h. In order to make easier the error catching all errors derive from the type std::logic_error defined in the file stdexcept of the S.T.L.

A standard procedure, GMM_STANDARD_CATCH_ERROR, is defined in gmm/gmm_except.h. This procedure catches all errors and prints the error message when an error occurs. It can be used in the main procedure of the program as follows:

int main(void) {
try {
... main program ...
} GMM_STANDARD_CATCH_ERROR;
}
