There are three main types of errors that can occur while compiling a JavaScript program: syntax errors, runtime errors and logical errors. There are two methods described to prevent these errors. The other method is exception handling. There are two types of JavaScript error: Syntax Error: Occurs when there is a mistake in the way the code is written; for example, a typo or missing character. Runtime error: Occurs when the script is unable to complete its instructions; for example, if a specified object cannot be found. Types or Sources of Error – There are two types of error: run-time and compile-time error: A run-time error is an error which takes place during the execution of a program, and usually happens because of adverse system parameters or invalid input data. Division by zero is not an error in JavaScript: it simply returns infinity or negative infinity. There is one exception, however: zero divided by zero does not have a welldefined value, and the result of this operation is the special not-a-number value, printed as NaN. The “A JavaScript error occurred in the main process” error usually appears when starting up Discord on your computer. The error message window usually contains various information regarding the error but it can hardly be interpreted by casual users.

log() is a good way to debug errors but setting breakpoint is a faster, efficient and better method. In this method, Breakpoints are set in code which stops the execution of code at that point so that the values of variables can be examined at that time.

The debugger statement stops the execution of JavaScript, and calls (if available) the debugging function. Using the debugger statement has the same function as setting a breakpoint in the code. Normally, you activate debugging in your browser with the F12 key, and select "Console" in the debugger menu.
