    about exception specification

    Hello everyone,


    How do you understand the comments from Bjarne about exception specification?

    --------------------
    (section 14.6.1 Checking Exception Specifications)

    The way to think about exception-specifications is to assume that a function will throw any exception it can. The rules for compile-time checking exception-specifications outlaw easily detected absurdities.
    --------------------


    thanks in advance,
    George

    Oh no, you don't. You're asking the wrong question.

    The question is not, what do we think, but what do you not understand.

    Ask the right question.
