It started out as a typical day for me at the office. I came in, I got my double dose of French Roast coffee and settled down for a long day of, well...doing whatever is I get paid to do here. Along the way I came across some documentation on Structured Exception Handling and found this interesting tidbit of information: Under the title "AMD64 Compiler Limitations" in the Windows Server 2003 DDK states the following:
"Inlining into SEH filters can result in invalid code if you use the GetExceptionCode or GetExceptionInfo fuctions."
The accompanying example illustrates the code that can cause problems:
//Avoid using GetExceptionInfo() for this structure
__inline void funca(DWORD);
//Instead use the compiler switch /Ob0 to disable inlining or use:
// On a class member function if there is a problem
I doubt many people would ever do this, but it is an interesting tidbit to keep in mind.
Oh well, time for another French Roast double!
