    Post Try-Catch Statement

    Hi,

    Is the try catch statement used to catch syntax errors?

    No. syntax errors are detected by the compiler, not the runtime

    Thanks Nor.

    If a method throws an exception is it first caught by the compiler?

    No. Exceptions happen at runtime not at compile time.
