Function object.Throwable.message

Get the message describing the error.

@__future const(char)[] message() nothrow @safe const;

This getter is an alternative way to access the Exception's message, with the added advantage of being override-able in subclasses. Subclasses are hence free to do their own memory managements without being tied to the requirement of providing a string in a field.

The default behavior is to return the Throwable.msg field.


A message representing the cause of the Throwable
