Exceptional Safety

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/11

I think I tend to forget with [WayBack] Exceptional Safety is this:

object destruction process must not cause or raise any unhandled exceptions or you will have memory leaks beyond your ability to fix them.

Particulary, that means the BeforeDestruction method – and destructors themselves – must never ever allow exceptions to escape them. Any escaping exception there will always cause memory leak. Period.


via [WayBack] Single or nested try…finally blocks? None will prevent the memory leak if your destructors are broken. – Dalija Prasnikar – Google+
