What is Python’s Try except and how does it work?

What is Try Except in Python?

Try method is used as Error and Exception Handling:

How Does Try() Work?

The following are the several steps involved in the operation of try:

  • Between the try and except clauses, the try clause is executed.
  • If there is no exception, only the try clause will be executed, and the except clause will be terminated.
  • If an exception occurs, the try clause will be bypassed and the except clause will be executed.
  • If the code’s except clause fails to handle an exception, the exception is sent to the outer try statements.
  • If the exception is not handled, the execution is terminated.
  • There can be more than one unless a clause in a try statement.

Exception Handling

Exceptions are objects that are derived from the fundamental Python class Exception. The Exception object contains details about the type of error that occurred in your code. Python comes with some built-in exceptions, and libraries can extend the Exception class to provide their own.
