Types of Program Error

Program errors:

There are three basic categories of program errors:

1. Syntax Errors

2. Run-time Errors

3. Logic Flaws

In the first two cases when an error occurs, the computer displays an 'Error Message', which describes the error, and its cause. Unfortunately, error messages are often difficult to interpret, and are sometimes misleading. In the final case, the program will not show an error message but it will not do what the programmer wanted it to do.
