C++ Function Try Blocks In constructor


Example

The only way to catch exception in initializer list:

struct A : public B
{
    A() try : B(), foo(1), bar(2)
    {
        // constructor body 
    }
    catch (...)
    {
        // exceptions from the initializer list and constructor are caught here
        // if no exception is thrown here
        // then the caught exception is re-thrown.
    }
 
private:
    Foo foo;
    Bar bar;
};
