except - small OS exceptions library

This library will transform system exceptions – SEH on Windows, SIGNALs on POSIX, in C++ exceptions.

This repository contains code for the NullPointerException in C++ article.

Structured Exceptions Handling (SEH)

Library uses _set_se_translator from eh.h in cooperation with /EHa compiler flag.

CMake build option: USE_WINDOWS_SE.

POSIX Signals

Library can use both signal and sigaction in cooperation with -fnon-call-exceptions compiler flag.

sigaction works as expected only with GCC on Linux. signal partially works only on... Windows.

CMake build options: USE_POSIX_SIGNAL and USE_POSIX_SIGACTION.

Tested Compilers / Platforms

See results for more information.

Build

Library uses CMake. Have a look at build.sh and build.cmd for adjustments.

Note

Since this code was done for testing purposes, you should not use it as it is in production. Make sure to select only the exeptions you can handle (null pointer, division by zero), and for the rest just call std::abort.

Also you should be careful about allocations in POSIX signals, std::ostringstream will allocate memory. See the list of POSIX async-sygnal-safe functions.
