The libexcept library provides a convenient class to derive your exception classes from. It provides a stack trace capability. At this point it is for Linux only.


You just have to derive from this library exception classes to gain access to the stack trace capability. Everything else will work under the hood for you.

The stack trace capability can be reused by other functions if need be. Especially, it is often used from within a Unix signal handler (i.e. SEGV, BUS, FLT, etc.)

In most cases, the stack trace will tell you where the error occurred, helping you focus on that function and finding the reason for the crash.
