Save and later restore the current exception state of a given JSContext.

Syntax

This is useful for implementing behavior in C++ that's like try/catch or try/finally in JS.

// Typical usage:
bool ok = JS::Evaluate(cx, ...);
AutoSaveExceptionState savedExc(cx);
... cleanup that might re-enter JS ...
return ok;
