/** The Error class is used to transport error information from the server to
    the client within libdap. This class is also the base class for all the
    errors thrown by methods in the DAP, so catching Error will catch all DAP
    throws. Errors consist of an error code and a string. The code can be
    used to quickly distinguish between certain common errors while the
    string is used to convey information about the error to the user. The
    error code should never be displayed to the user.

    This class is used on both clients and servers. The \e print() and \e
    parse() methods are used to send the object back and forth.

    @note A past version of this class supported the notion of an error
    correcting program (Tcl, Java, ...) that could be sent from the server to
    the client to help users correct the error and resubmit the request. This
    never worked well in practice and that feature of the class is deprecated.

    @brief A class for error processing.
