Function throw_runtime_error



// In header: <boost/container/throw_exception.hpp>

BOOST_NORETURN void throw_runtime_error(const char * str);


Exception callback called by Boost.Container to report errors that can only be detected during runtime.

  • If BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS is NOT defined std::runtime_error(str) is thrown.

  • If BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS is defined and BOOST_CONTAINER_USER_DEFINED_THROW_CALLBACKS is NOT defined BOOST_ASSERT_MSG(!"boost::container runtime_error thrown", str) is called and std::abort() if the former returns.

  • If BOOST_NO_EXCEPTIONS and BOOST_CONTAINER_USER_DEFINED_THROW_CALLBACKS are defined the user must provide an implementation and the function should not return.
