[][src]Type Definition sgx_tstd::thread::Result

type Result<T> = Result<T, Box<dyn Any + Send + 'static>>;

A specialized Result type for threads.

Indicates the manner in which a thread exited.

The value contained in the Result::Err variant is the value the thread panicked with; that is, the argument the panic! macro was called with. Unlike with normal errors, this value doesn't implement the Error trait.

Thus, a sensible way to handle a thread panic is to either:

  1. unwrap the Result<T>, propagating the panic
  2. or in case the thread is intended to be a subsystem boundary that is supposed to isolate system-level failures, match on the Err variant and handle the panic in an appropriate way.

A thread that completes without panicking is considered to exit successfully.
