/* Call FUNC(UIOUT, FUNC_ARGS) but wrapped within an exception
handler. If an exception (enum return_reason) is thrown using
throw_exception() than all cleanups installed since
catch_exceptions() was entered are invoked, the (-ve) exception
value is then returned by catch_exceptions. If FUNC() returns
normally (with a positive or zero return value) then that value is
returned by catch_exceptions(). It is an internal_error() for
FUNC() to return a negative value.
For the period of the FUNC() call: UIOUT is installed as the output
builder; ERRSTRING is installed as the error/quit message; and a
new cleanup_chain is established. The old values are restored
before catch_exceptions() returns.
The variant catch_exceptions_with_msg() is the same as
catch_exceptions() but adds the ability to return an allocated
copy of the gdb error message. This is used when a silent error is
issued and the caller wants to manually issue the error message.
MASK specifies what to catch; it is normally set to
RETURN_MASK_ALL, if for no other reason than that the code which
calls catch_errors might not be set up to deal with a quit which
isn't caught. But if the code can deal with it, it generally
should be RETURN_MASK_ERROR, unless for some reason it is more
useful to abort only the portion of the operation inside the
catch_errors. Note that quit should return to the command line
fairly quickly, even if some further processing is being done.
FIXME; cagney/2001-08-13: The need to override the global UIOUT
builder variable should just go away.
This function supersedes catch_errors().
This function uses SETJMP() and LONGJUMP(). */
