Expects block to throw an error. error can be constructor, regexp or validation function.
Validate instanceof using constructor:
assertthrows throw "Wrong value"; Error;
Validate error message using RegExp:
assertthrows throw "Wrong value"; /value/;
Custom error validation:
assertthrowsthrow "Wrong value";if err instanceof Error && /value/testerrreturn true;"unexpected error";
Expects block not to throw an error, see assert.throws for details.
Tests if value is not a false value, throws if it is a true value. Useful when testing the first argument, error in callbacks.
