Subject [jira] Commented: (STDCXX-240) #define _RWSTD_NO_EXCEPTIONS when exceptions are disabled via command line option
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2007 03:16:43 GMT


Travis Vitek commented on STDCXX-240:

The original snippet provided above shows someone trying to build their code without exception
support, with a library was configured with exception support. If I attempt to do this [e.g.,
build the library as normal, then build the examples without exceptions], I get errors in
the tests and examples where we use exception keywords try/throw/catch. I'm guessing I should
go through and fix all of those issues and add those changes to the patch or I should open
up a new bug for the problem. Considering the issue is pre-existing and is fairly large, it
might be better to create a new bug for dealing with it.

I don't believe we should need to define the other macros explicitly. The include order is
such that we shouldn't have to. I do see that we define _LIBC_THROWS to `throw ()' regardless
of any of the other exception macros. This is probably wrong.

I believe the error above was caused by building the library with -qnoeh, and then attempting
to build user code without it. Now that I think about it, that is a bad idea anyways.

> We should do this AND test it -- not just on aCC but in general with all compilers that
support this feature.
