7.2.2 Condition Object

A condition is an object whose class indicates the general nature of the condition and whose instance data carries information about the details of the particular circumstances that lead to the condition being signaled. In this hypothetical log analysis program, you might define a condition class, ‘malformed-log-entry-error’, that parse-log-entry will signal if it’s given data it can’t parse.
