open infix fun <E, A> suspend EagerEffectScope<E>.() -> A.catch(recover: EagerEffectScope<R>.(E) -> A): A

When the EagerEffect has shifted with R it will recover the shifted value to A, and when it ran the computation to completion it will return the value A. catch is used in combination with attempt.
