I'm beginning to think that it's time that all the legacy exception
stuff in MySQL++ should die. It was created in a time long ago, when
not all C++ compilers supported Standard C++ exceptions. Now that we've
moved the bar up so high w.r.t. compilers that we support, is this
feature even necessary any more?
Removing this would have these benefits:
- exceptions.h.in would become a regular header, and half the code in it
would go away.
- All that nasty conditional code in the examples would go away.
- The exception flag to the configure script would be the default.
- I could, in good conscience, accept Chris Frey's Row::operator at()
Anyone have any complaints about doing this? I think that I will make
at least one release before doing this if there's no dissent, in order
to get some other patches out separately.
