Python Print exception message

  • by

The most common method to catch and print the exception message in Python is using try-except statements. If You want to save an error message then use the logger.exception() method.

This method produces an error message as well as a log trace. It contains information such as the code line number at which the exception occurred and the time the exception occurred.
