The term for resistant to problems and surviving failures.

Exhibiting persistence in harsh conditions.

What if we described resilience per context? An example would be the handling of exceptions. Statically-compiled languages offer varying levels of traces, dumps, and such. Dynamic languages (such as Smalltalk, Lisp, and Dylan) usually offer some way to handle the run-time context at the point of the error with another program (with dynamic scope) and some handler functions that can recontinue. --water
