If you're in trouble and cannot find an answer to a question which goes beyond Stack Overflow...
If you have a not-so-usual solution for your problems but need to justify it to your boss...
If you like to think on your own rather than blindly follow "common wisdom" and "profound truth"...
...then 'No Bugs' Hare on Soft.ware might be the right place for you.

Unchecked Exceptions for C++

Quote: “‘unchecked’ std::errors are treated as ‘something which should never ever happen, but in practice MAY occur as a result of potentially-recoverable bug'”
Another Quote: “Failing-Fast does NOT mean we should necessarily Fail-Hard(!). In certain (production!) cases, Failing-Fast-AND-Soft IS a substantially better alternative.”

App-level Developer on std::error Exceptions Proposal for C++. Part II. The Discussion.

Quote: “having an ability to associate extra information with std::error is important for us – both for our own std::error exceptions, and for conversion from existing C++ exceptions”
Another Quote: “I think that current C++ standard is Badly Lacking(tm) a concept of ‘segfault’ (which is supported by CPUs on VAST majority of modern systems with modern C++ compilers)”

App-level Developer on std::error Exceptions Proposal for C++. Part I. The Good

Quote: “No single error handling method is good enough for ALL the projects – which in turn leads to segmentation, with some of the projects using exceptions, and some others using error codes”
Another Quote: “Right above I said that I like the std::error exception proposal a.k.a.[P0709R0]. However, as soon as I look at competing proposals, I begin to love it.”

Quick Update on C++ Compiler Bug Hunt (overall, 15 bugs reported, 8 already fixed)

Some time ago, I wrote a post about kscope – mini-project on finding and reporting bugs in modern C++ compilers. The point was that there is a way to use C++ facilities to make C++ code self-mutating (more strictly – pseudo-randomized using externally supplied ITHARE_KSCOPE_SEED macro), which allows finding certain classes of bugs during randomized […]
