If you are using GCC in the project, you can also set some of the
relevant compiler options to *purposely* eliminate proper
exception handling:

-fno-exceptions -fno-enforce-eh-specs

This may result in smaller code and improved performance at the
expense of losing run time exception handling. Although this slightly
breaks standards adherence, these options are useful for projects
with dire performance and size constraints.

Best regards, Chris.
