Creating a new RuntimeError instance

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

try {
  throw new WebAssembly.RuntimeError('Hello', 'someFile', 10);
} catch (e) {
  console.log(e instanceof WebAssembly.RuntimeError); // true
  console.log(e.message);                             // "Hello"
  console.log(e.name);                                // "RuntimeError"
  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
