See the program below. At least for me (VC++6 running on
W2K), if I compile it in release mode with the /EHa switch
and run it from the command prompt I get:
(I get the same result in debug mode)
On the other hand, if I compile with the (default) /GX
switch and run it from the command prompt, it simply crashes
and exits before it gets a chance to print anything.
void RelayException( unsigned int aCode, EXCEPTION_POINTERS* aInfo )
_set_se_translator( RelayException );
int* test = NULL;
*test = 42;
catch( ... )
std::cout << "Exception" << std::endl;
std::cout << "Done" << std::endl;
