#416 closed Feature Request (Rejected)

Ability to Hide all errors (or write them to a log)

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:

Version: Severity: None
Keywords: Cc:


The reason I ask for this is for the company I work for, one of the big things they look for in scripts is so that even if it crashes and burns, it will not bother the end user.

In a few other scripting languages I've used there have been options to write all errors to a log and not display them, and this is what I am asking for.

I know that you may be hesitant to put this in, as it could also be useful for malware not alerting users to it's presence, but there are so many other options for that that I don't think it's prohibitive.

I understand that the vast majority of errors can be caught and handled with good coding, but there are some that I don't believe can be done this way, and that is why I make this request.

There are a number of reasons I'm closing this as rejected. First, I have in a private list details regarding a better error-reporting system. Second, you can already achieve "silent errors" by ensuring the scripts are invoked with /ErrorStdOut. This forces all errors to go to the stdout stream which will have the end result of the errors not being seen by the user. Third, your script shouldn't have errors in it in the first place, and there are plenty of tools to prevent them. The only errors in a script that are terminal are syntax errors or out of memory. If there are any other terminal error messages they likely need removed.
