I have long code which goes through iteration process. some times I get error messages. I want to get the iteration numbers (or any kind of output indications) when errors happen. for example, how can I print something when error happen in this simple example:

   Do[{i/i, 1/(i - 5)}, {i, -10, 10}]

here, there are two errors when i=0 & when i=5,

how can I output the values of i when the errors happen.

I have different kinds of errors so I want to get the output if any kind of error happen.

thanks.

Do[
  Check[{i/i, 1/(i - 5)}, Print@i],
  {i, -10, 10}] // Quiet

0

5

Another approach:

a = Table[{i/i, 1/(i - 5)}, {i, -5, 5}] // Quiet

{{1, -(1/10)}, {1, -(1/9)}, {1, -(1/8)}, {1, -(1/7)}, {1, -(1/ 6)}, {Indeterminate, -(1/5)}, {1, -(1/4)}, {1, -(1/3)}, {1, -(1/ 2)}, {1, -1}, {1, ComplexInfinity}}

DeleteCases[a, {___, Indeterminate | ComplexInfinity, ___}]

{{1, -(1/10)}, {1, -(1/9)}, {1, -(1/8)}, {1, -(1/7)}, {1, -(1/ 6)}, {1, -(1/4)}, {1, -(1/3)}, {1, -(1/2)}, {1, -1}}

Position[a, #] & /@ {Indeterminate, ComplexInfinity}

{{{6, 1}}, {{11, 2}}}
