Subject: Weather:Com dies on error rather than throwing a recoverable error
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 753b
When errors are encountered (such as a bad location or bad key), the routine 'dies' rather than throwing a recoverable error. I want to call the weather routines as part of a larger program and I don't want the program itself to die just because there is a problem with the weather.com inputs. It would be better if instead a 'warn' level error were issued along with an error return code. Then each programmer can decide what to do when such an error is encountered (including whether they want to die or recover from the error). I can't see any benefit of having a blanket die response. My particular concern is that I wouldn't want my broader program which runs as a daemon to suddenly die one day just because my license expired. Thanks
