Smart pointer methods in ptr.h throw nothing

The throw of nothing is causing some problems in a sevral methods, like this one:

#ifdef _WIN32

T operator&() throw(...)


T operator&()



if (p!=NULL)

throw; ::Create(MgException::NLSGetMessage(_NLSID(_2_BADPARAMETER)));

return &p;


Notice that the throw statements are actually rethrow statements - these can't be caught by any catch statement. Here is a little test app showing that you can't catch this kind of throw statement even with catch(…). You always crash with an unhandled exception.

void f() throw(...) {



int main(int, char ) {

try {


} catch(...) {

::std::cerr << "Caught an exception" << ::std::endl;

} return 1;
