Two questions.

1. Visual Basic has a feature called On Error Resume Next and On Error GoTo TrapError, which allows you to trap error and/or avoid them. Is there a similar way of doing this is C++? Everytime I run into an error, I have to reboot my computer.

2. VB also has a feature which allows you to exit a function from within a function. It's something like "Exit Sub". How do I do this in C++. Do I use Break?

Thanks.

1. For something like 'On Error goto' use C++ TRY/CATCH statements

2. No, 'break' can only be used in loops and 'sitch' statements, simply use 'return( <returntype>)

1. try, catch, and throw for errors.
2. equivalent of EXIT SUB is the return statement.
