I am developing a moderate sized c++ framework package. The package
has a lot of exception code and I used to compile and use it successfully
under Slackware Linux, gcc.188.8.131.52, binutils.2.8.x
There were no problems with exception handling, as far as I could see.
After I upgraded to Redhat Linux 5.0 (and hence to gcc 184.108.40.206, glibc2,
binutils-2.8.1.x etc., I first had problems with debugging with gdb.
This was resolved by an upgrade to "binutils-2.9.x" (thans to all who
But in the meantime, I had upgraded to gcc-2.8.1 and the corresponding
libg++ and libstdc++.220.127.116.11. This version of gcc is claimed to be
much more stable and in working condition in terms of exception handling.
However, my current problem is non-working exception code!!
Namely, when the exception is thrown, the program does not enter
the handling code in the try-catch pair. The program is terminated by
an Abort call and I have a core dump.
What is the matter with gcc-2.8.1?? Or, am I missing some other point?
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
