Andrew MMath: Used (most of) Gregor's feedback to update the thesis. There are still a few \todo items as well as a general request for examples.

130
131The \CFA (Cforall) programming language is an evolutionary refinement of
132the C programming language, adding modern programming features without
133changing the programming paradigms of C.
134One of these modern programming features is more powerful error handling
135through the addition of an exception handling mechanism (EHM).
136
137This thesis covers the design and implementation of the \CFA EHM,
138along with a review of the other required \CFA features.
139The EHM includes common features of termination exception handling,
140which abandons and recovers from an operation,
141and similar support for resumption exception handling,
142which repairs and continues with an operation.
143The design of both has been adapted to utilize other tools \CFA provides,
144as well as fit with the assertion based interfaces of the language.
145
146The EHM has been implemented into the \CFA compiler and run-time environment.
147Although it has not yet been optimized, performance testing has shown it has
148comparable performance to other EHMs,
149which is sufficient for use in current \CFA programs.
