Response to: You *CAN* ignore checked exceptions in Java

Sorry, I don't write Java (yet).
But either one wants an implicit exception handler to percolate the exception (fi the ILE language compilers on the IBM AS/400) and thus one has to 'steal back' the exception one does want to catch or one has (must) to tell the compiler that one likes to pass the exception up. Either way you'll need to specify what you want.
If compilers were smart enough to read the mind there was no need to do any coding at all. (Oops, just told you my favorite programming language)

Of course, maybe this isn't a philosophical thread.
