An insightful blog entry by Herb Sutter on C++ exception specifications and why they’re best avoided.

  1. Your forum is broken. I tried creating an account and nothing, no password, no nothing.

  2. Sorry, let me clarify. I never got an email with the password. So I cannot login, or post.

  4. I’m inclined to agree that a specification listing classes is probably not helpful (certainly a pain in Java) but it seems to me that an ability to say ‘does not throw’ can potentially provide a useful hint to the compiler that may help generate reasonable code, and I’m all for that. Personally I only ever add empty exception specification clauses.

  5. I still never got a password and registered under two names. If someone could email me my password to electic at that would be great.
