NHelpfulException

A simple wrapper for System.Exception to help make exceptions more meaningful.

Usage:

1. Create your HelpfulException

    public class MyHelpfulException : HelpfulException
    {
        public MyHelpfulException(string problemDescription, 
                                  string[] resolutionSuggestions = default(string[]),
                                  Exception innerException = default(Exception))
            : base(problemDescription, resolutionSuggestions, innerException) {}
    }

2. Instantiate and throw the exception

    throw new MyHelpfulException("Coffee supply too low.", 
                                  new []{ "Buy some more coffee.", 
                                          "Stop drinking so much coffee." });

3. Bask in the glory of a meaningful exception message


    Coffee supply too low.
    Suggestions:
     - Buy some more coffee.
     - Stop drinking so much coffee.
