During Ale Contenti’s first Channel 9 video (VC++ Safe Libraries and More) he was asked how the Safe CRT worked with exceptions. This was a great question, but too much to handle at the time. Ale suggested the topic was worth a whole other video…and so here it is! Ale is joined in this video by Louis Lafreniere (developer on the backend) to give you the whole picture – including how exception handling is implemented (even describing the variations caused by different hardware) and optimized. You can find the new video here.
This video is deep, and at 55 minutes fairly long, so get a fresh coffee, allocate some time and sit down to enjoy this one.
