Hi, does anybody know how well C++ exceptions are supported and by different but commonly used compilers? Does the code look the same ... can it be ported? I read that there is a GNU-way to work with exceptions. Is that just a coding style convention? I didn't really find any documents that said how well std::exceptions are supported. What I found is threads about problems with GNU compilers ... but those were all pretty old. So I'm hoping everything is well these days?

I was under the impression that exceptions have been very well supported for 8 or 9 years now, with slight exceptions for exception specifications on older MS compilers. I rarely see exception specifications used, but the rest is almost certainly portable. Much of the standard library uses exceptions in some way or other so I expect problems would have been sorted out by now.
