JavaScript Node.js Basics (2014) Building a Command Line Application Using try and catch

Something bad is going to happen. Use a try block in the appropriate place to catch an error. Include a catch block with


var jsonString = 'This is not a JSON String';
var jsonObject = JSON.parse(jsonString);

try { //var jsonString = 'This is not a JSON String'; 
     //var jsonObject = JSON.parse(jsonString); 
catch(error) {}
