    Bad_alloc exception in under Linux?

    I was compilling a school assignment that I had done in Visual C++ on my home computer running Slackware 8.1 w/ gcc 2.95.3

    Anyway, I used the 'bad_alloc' exception thrown by the system when there is no more space to be allocated to the heap.

    I was wondering what I could use as an equalivent on my Linux system.

    The code runs and compiles fine without the lines using that exception.

    The compiler supports exceptions fine... my own user defined exceptions work perfectly.

    Code:
    template<class ItemType>
    const bool BST3<ItemType>::IsFull(){
    	/*****
    	Tests if tree is full by catching the bad_alloc() exception
    		bad_alloc() exception is thrown if no memory is available for data
    		to be allocated
    	******/
    
    
    	try{
    		BST3_node* temp_ptr;
    
    		temp_ptr = new BST3_node;	//Check for one node allocation
    		delete temp_ptr;
    	}
    	catch(	bad_alloc error	){	return true;  }
    
    
    	return false;
    }
    There is an example of an IsFull function for a binary search tree I did for my non-linear data structures class. All compiles and runs fine under vC++ 6.0 -- and compiles fine with gcc/g++ 2.96 if I remove the lines that catch the bad_alloc.
