WebAssembly.CompileError() constructor

The WebAssembly.CompileError() constructor creates a new WebAssembly CompileError object, which indicates an error during WebAssembly decoding or validation.

Syntax

new WebAssembly.CompileError()
new WebAssembly.CompileError(message)
new WebAssembly.CompileError(message, options)
new WebAssembly.CompileError(message, fileName)
new WebAssembly.CompileError(message, fileName, lineNumber)

Parameters

message Optional

Human-readable description of the error.

options Optional

cause Optional

A property indicating the specific cause of the error. When catching and re-throwing an error with a more-specific or useful error message, this property can be used to pass the original error.

Examples

Creating a new CompileError instance

The following snippet creates a new CompileError instance, and logs its details to the console:

try {
  throw new WebAssembly.CompileError('Hello', 'someFile', 10);
} catch (e) {
  console.log(e instanceof CompileError); // true
  console.log(e.message);                 // "Hello"
  console.log(e.name);                    // "CompileError"
  console.log(e.fileName);                // "someFile"
  console.log(e.lineNumber);              // 10
  console.log(e.columnNumber);            // 0
  console.log(e.stack);                   // returns the location where the code was run
}
