But instead of exiting, the program will react as if we wrote "-4 THROW" instead of "DROP DROP". The program will correctly report an exception when we enter "0" and act accordingly. This will work with virtually every runtime error. Which means we won’t have to protect our program against every possible user-error, but let Forth do the checking. We won’t even have to set flags in every possible colon-definition, since Forth will automatically skip every level between ’THROW’ and ’CATCH’. Even better, the stacks will be restored to the same depth as they were before ’CATCH’ was called.

Now we turn to strings. When programming in BASIC, strings usually have an undefined length. Some BASICs move strings around in memory, others have to perform some kind of "garbage-collection". Whatever method they use, it takes up memory and processor-time. Forth forces you to think about your application. g. when you want to store somebodies name in a string variable, 16 characters will be too few and 256 characters too many. But 64 characters will probably do. But that poses a problem when you want to get a string from the keyboard.

Even better, the stacks will be restored to the same depth as they were before ’CATCH’ was called. You can handle the error in any way you want. You can display an error message, call some kind of error-handler, or just ignore the error.
