Boost Exception

get_error_info

#include <boost/exception/info.hpp>

namespace
boost
    {
    template <class ErrorInfo,class E>
    shared_ptr<typename ErrorInfo::value_type const> get_error_info( E const & x );
    }

Requirements:

  • ErrorInfo must be an instance of the error_info template.
  • E must be polymorphic.

Returns:

  • If dynamic_cast<boost::exception const *>(&x) is 0, or if x does not store an object of type ErrorInfo, the returned value is an empty shared_ptr.
  • Otherwise, the returned shared_ptr points to the stored value (use operator<< to store values in exception objects.) The shared_ptr is valid even after x has been destroyed.

Throws:

Nothing.
