Error handling

If more than one error occurs, only the first error is returned

Scene one
c := carbon.SetTimezone(PRC).Parse("xxx")
if c.Error != nil {
    // Error handle...
    log.Fatal(c.Error)
}
fmt.Println(c.ToDateTimeString())
// Output
cannot parse "xxx" as carbon, please make sure the value is valid
Scene two
c := carbon.SetTimezone("xxx").Parse("2020-08-05")
if c.Error != nil {
    // Error handle...
    log.Fatal(c.Error)
}
fmt.Println(c.ToDateTimeString())
// Output
invalid timezone "xxx", please see the file "$GOROOT/lib/time/zoneinfo.zip" for all valid timezones
Scene three
c := carbon.SetTimezone("xxx").Parse("12345678")
if c.Error != nil {
    // Error handle...
    log.Fatal(c.Error)
}
fmt.Println(c.ToDateTimeString())
// Output
invalid timezone "xxx", please see the file "$GOROOT/lib/time/zoneinfo.zip" for all valid timezones
