By default, when something goes wrong we try to catch it, interpret it and give you a friendly warning message.
This avoids overwhelming you with "sea of red" exceptions, but is inconvenient because it basically disables advanced scripting.
Using this switch turns this "nice by default" feature off and enables you to catch exceptions with your own try/catch.
If this switch is enabled, no actions are performed but informational messages will be displayed that explain what would happen if the command were to run.
If this switch is enabled, you will be prompted for confirmation before executing any operations that change state.
