Package errors implements various utility functions and types around errors.



This section is empty.


View Source
var ErrPreconditionViolated = errors.New("precondition is violated")

ErrPreconditionViolated is returned when the precondition is violated


func FilterOut

func FilterOut(err error, fns ...Matcher) error

FilterOut removes all errors that match any of the matchers from the input error. If the input is a singular error, only that error is tested. If the input implements the Aggregate interface, the list of errors will be processed recursively.

This can be used, for example, to remove known-OK errors (such as io.EOF or os.PathNotFound) from a list of errors.

func Reduce

func Reduce(err error) error

Reduce will return err or, if err is an Aggregate and only has one item, the first item in the aggregate.


type Aggregate

type Aggregate interface {
	Errors() []error

Aggregate represents an object that contains multiple errors, but does not necessarily have singular semantic meaning.

func AggregateGoroutines

func AggregateGoroutines(funcs ...func() error) Aggregate

AggregateGoroutines runs the provided functions in parallel, stuffing all non-nil errors into the returned Aggregate. Returns nil if all the functions complete successfully.

func Flatten

func Flatten(agg Aggregate) Aggregate

Flatten takes an Aggregate, which may hold other Aggregates in arbitrary nesting, and flattens them all into a single Aggregate, recursively.

func NewAggregate

func NewAggregate(errlist []error) Aggregate

NewAggregate converts a slice of errors into an Aggregate interface, which is itself an implementation of the error interface. If the slice is empty, this returns nil. It will check if any of the element of input error list is nil, to avoid nil pointer panic when call Error().

type Matcher

type Matcher func(error) bool

Matcher is used to match errors. Returns true if the error matches.
