(This is originally a private mail reposted with hope
to get more feedback. Boost.Exception
is a library waiting in review queue.)
When using your library I met 2 problems:
* GCC 3.4.2, shipped with MingW
(and part of wxDevC++ IDE, on Windows)
fails to recognize
overide of std::exception::what()
and ends with an error.
I was not able to find what could
be the problem, everything looked OK.
At the end, not knowing better,
I changed the name to what2().
* When using GCC 4.1.1 which has ability
to hide symbols in a shared library by default
I run in the problem described in
in section "Problems with C++ exceptions (please read!)".
Currently, I reenabled exporting all symbols by default.
The OS is Linux.
