Compiler Error C2311

Error Message

'exception' : is caught by '...' on line number

The catch handler for the ellipsis (...) must be the last handler for a throw.

The following sample generates C2311:

// C2311.cpp
// compile with: /EHsc
#include <eh.h>
int main() {
   try {
      throw "ooops!";
   catch( ... ) {}
   catch( int ) {}   // C2311  ellipsis handler not last catch
