Why use exceptions?
Posted on 1999-01-20
I have been writing in C++ casually for a couple of years now and I have never really needed to use exceptions outside of constructors.
I am interested in hearing the reasons why a programmer would opt to use exceptions more liberally, if not exclusively. Can anyone help with this?
Also, I've had some difficulty finding a tutorial on the net that outlines the moral use of exceptions. I'm very interested in links and/or pointers if anyone has them.
