Identifying multiple raised errors

In this lesson we learned that we can use 'as err' to call a raised function, pretty useful, but I'm curious how you'd use 'as err' if you raise multiple errors in a function?

Great question!

The first error raised will be the one that needs to be dealt with...so there will only ever be one error at a time. That make sense?

You catch multiple different error types with multiple except blocks, each of those can also use the as keyword to get ahold of the exception.

Hope that helps!

Yes I think I understand, I'm sure it'll sink in more as I learn more about the logistics of Python.
