Speak up if you use #define _HAS_EXCEPTIONS

I am trying to understand number of customers use this #define and user
scenarios it is currently used in. If you see #define _HAS_EXCEPTIONS in
your source code, could you please reply to me directly or just comment here info on

- what kind application is this?

- what are reasons to use this #define?

- how big is an impact on you if this #define was removed from STL inVS2005?

Please specify in your reply if you want me to post your comment online. Yes is assumed by default.

    I wish I’d found this earlier…  Using the STL without exceptions is crucial to us in our code shop.  We write games and when we discovered it was just a beta feature we ended up having to rewrite all our containers.

    Umm, could have been easier to switch to STLPort
