More difficult. You'd have to have a special runtime, and change the constructor for RangeError to access a null pointer.

Turn off rtTrapExceptions....

though the command line switch PR is STILL NOT MERGED

come on, people.

   extern (C) __gshared bool rt_trapExceptions;
   static this ()
   {
      rt_trapExceptions = false;
   }

plus

   -L-zmuldefs

is required for linking. It works. But why is that -zmuldefs linker option required? The "double extern" version

   extern extern (C) __gshared bool rt_trapExceptions;

compiles and links but does not behave seem to set the same variable.

This will catch exceptions raised in main and in static constructors that run after this one. However, if you put that code in the module that includes main(), it's probably going to be the last static constructor run. That means it doesn't impact other static constructors.

The only fix for that is putting this code in its own module that you add as the first import in every module. And if you depend on any library with a static constructor anywhere inside, you have to modify that library.

But exceptions can be thrown before any static constructor is run. The function that calls static constructors might detect a cycle straight off, for instance.

That's why the This Week In D post injected it into the C main function.
