Many classic  programming languages provide a command to interrupt
computations when some exception arises, allowing to perform any action on
the exception as in something as, for example:

OnError [] do (action)] [routine]  (*This could be the general pattern*)

OnError [] do (Print[Stack]; Abort[] ) [routine] (*This could be a more
specific pattern*)

OnError [Thread"::"tdlen"] do JumpToCheck ][routine] 

(*The above could be a more specific but even more general pattern. The jump
made to an exception handling routine to evaluate or treat the exception*)

These catching commands should be located  at the beginning of the whole
code as in *TimeConstrained[routine, time]* which aborts the  routine if it
takes more than time seconds.

Mathematica has got enough stuff to deal with erroneous situation (Abort,
Interrupt, Catch, Throw,=85) provided one is able to catch the exception (and
its type) as soon as it arises , but I never was able to do it.

Since Mathematica prints the errors messages, the type of the exception and
the exact point where it arises is available (but hidden) to let the user to
take control. Probably the tool is already available but I can find it.

Any help will be welcome
