Detailed Description

FitsException is the base class for all exceptions thrown by this library.

All exceptions derived from this class can be caught by a single 'catch' clause catching FitsException by reference (which is the point of this base class design).

A static "verboseMode" parameter is provided by the FITS class to control diagnostics - if FITS::verboseMode() is true, all diagnostics are printed (for debugging purposes). If not, then a boolean silent determines printing of messages. Each exception derived from FitsException must define a default value for the silent parameter.

const string & CCfits::FitsException::message ( ) const

returns the error message

This returns the diagnostic error message associated with the exception object, and which is accessible regardless of the verboseMode and silent flag settings.
