Throws a type error. Used when the type of an argument is incorrect. For example, trying ot use a non-callable term as a message. This built-in method is declared private and thus cannot be used as a message to an object. Calling this predicate is equivalent to the following sequence of goals:
..., context(Context), throw(error(type_error(Type,Culprit), Context)).
This allows the user to generate errors in the same format used by the runtime.
Possible values for
Type include all the types defined by the
library object and by other libraries such as
optionals. The value of
Culprit is the argument or one of its sub-terms
that caused the error.
Modes and number of proofs¶
type_error(@nonvar, @term) - error
..., \+ atom(Name), type_error(atom, Name).
