Catching C++ Exceptions in D - Windows and Linux
September 12
Hi.

I'm here in HK with Ilya, Atila, John Colvin, and Jonathan Davis. 
 I wondered what the current state of D catching C++ exceptions was on Linux and Windows.  I know that some work was done on making this possible, and my understanding is that it is, more or less - just wondered what the rough corners might be.

Thanks.


Laeeth.

IIRC I remember Walter saying that we should only bother to be able to catch C++ exceptions derived from std::exception, as opposed to say ints or strings. I believe the line was "those who throw ints should get what they deserve".

Apart from that I believe they should "just work", although I haven't tested.

OT I'm sorry I could make it to HK, I'm busy with uni all this week. I could possibly do telepresence though.

Thanks, Nic.  Sorry about the dates - was arranged last minute.  I'll drop you a line shortly in any case.
