The PKCSError exception class describes an exception associated with finding data that does not conform to the Public-Key Cryptography Standards (PKCS). See, for example, PKCS #1 for more information about what the standards affect.

To produce a PKCSError exception yourself, you typically use a SOUL Throw statement with a PKCSError New constructor. This statement must be issued from within a method, and it can only be caught by the code that calls the method. For example, the following statement throws a PKCSError exception:

throw %(PKCSError):new

For an outline of how you might use an exception in a function of your own, see this Get method example.
