I like the first answer in this link:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/82831/how-do-i-check-whether-a-file-exists-without-exceptions

"If the reason you're checking is so you can do something like
if file_exists: open_it(), it's safer to use a try around the attempt
to open it. Checking and then opening risks the file being deleted
or moved or something between when you check and when you try to open it."



Generally, I believe that Python's taste is:

try:
f = open("my-file")
except:
[ error handling ]


rather than:

if not os.path.exists("my-file"):
[ error handling ]
f = open("my-file")



With the same logic applied,
if you like to display your custom error message here,
more Python-ish code might be:


try:
[ run clang-tidy ]
except FileNotFoundError:
print("Command 'clang-tidy' is missing in the system", file=sys.stderr)
sys.exit(127)
except:
[ handle other errors ]



I often see, "I observed Python's backtrace, so let's suppress it"
for clang-tools scripts.

For example,
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20210520231821.12272-2-maciej.falkowski9@gmail.com/


If you believe "our custom error messages are better than
the default ones from Python", do you want to insert
ones to every code that can fail?

I do not think so.
