type_error/2

Description

type_error(Type, Culprit)

Throws a type error. This built-in method is declared private and thus cannot be used as a message to an object. Calling this predicate is equivalent to the following sequence of calls:

...,
context(Context),
throw(error(type_error(Type,Culprit), Context)).

This allows the user to generate errors in the same format used by the runtime.
