<scons_function name="AllowSubstExceptions">
<arguments signature="global">
([exception, ...])
</arguments>
<summary>
<para>
Specifies the exceptions that will be allowed
when expanding construction variables.
By default,
any construction variable expansions that generate a
<literal>NameError</literal>
or
<literal>IndexError</literal>
exception will expand to a
<literal>''</literal>
(a null string) and not cause scons to fail.
All exceptions not in the specified list
will generate an error message
and terminate processing.
</para>

<para>
If
&f-AllowSubstExceptions;
is called multiple times,
each call completely overwrites the previous list
of allowed exceptions.
</para>

<para>
Example:
</para>

<example_commands>
# Requires that all construction variable names exist.
# (You may wish to do this if you want to enforce strictly
# that all construction variables must be defined before use.)
AllowSubstExceptions()

# Also allow a string containing a zero-division expansion
# like '${1 / 0}' to evalute to ''.
AllowSubstExceptions(IndexError, NameError, ZeroDivisionError)
