If this is fixed it is possibly the fix for bugzilla report: Bug 221423 - gcc std::locale(LocaleName) crashes instead of throwing an exception It may also fix some examples mentioned in comments for: Bug 221288 - lang/gcc5 links against libsupc++ when compiling but the original description did not happen to involve exception handling from what I can see. Instead __dynamic_cast failed. === Mark Millard markmi at dsl-only.net _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
