hi
i built an application in visual c++ 2005 pro to send and receive from many serial ports at the same time..
so i am sending a string over the night to ports opened or closed every ten seconds, so might receive a lot of exceptions using try ...catch
what are the negatives of this ?
thanks
regard

try/cath produces a meaningful delay in your application, you should try to test if there is data in the buffer.

no, it doesn't have to freeze, indeed the try/catch block purpose is to allow your app to work without problems.
it has to be related with other problem, maybe you are having a memory leak.
